There’s a wall in China,
And a tower in London.
There’s a matador in Spain,
Taking a bow in a pit of viscera and roses.

And just like that,
History was written.
And just like that,
We stumbled across the ending.

This feels deeper than just an ending of a relationship...I see blood and death...what sadness I feel...this has moved me in a way I've never been moved before...Kacee

"pit of viscera and roses"
I felt this. That line especially...

acute, resonant, profoundly affecting, and the first poem I read being back. takes time to absorb this one, has depth beyond the immediate impact.

love this. I like the little concise ones that cut. Also, appreciate your comment on my piece.

Lit vets
Hell, I'm not a Lit Vet, I'm still kneehigh to a grasshopper compared to some. But that has flattered me in a way that I am rarely flattered at post-cereal-choking/pre-first-cup-of-coffee o'clock in the early afternoon.

You're right about this poem. What I felt when I wrote this was big. Really big. And it had a bloody history all its own.

Made me think of some of those places and things that men do and wonder how much (or how little) it would matter a hundred years from now.

Thanks for coming back to see some of my older pieces. It's much appreciated. :)

As for Dig, I needed to give it just a touch of my tender lovin' care. It's back up now.

viscera and roses
I remember this, Meghan. And I also remember my deleted comment your reply was to. I wrote how I had the sense that something vast was either in the making or being unmade. I think. Either way, your beautiful words stand the test of time.

Did you ever get your password?

this poem makes me think of futility of tourist attractions. So sad about Tokyo, and Japan in general.
