the strongest people i’ve ever known

don’t flinch when threatened

they use the threat

they use the violence

Today, I received a "review" of a poem that I posted here a few days ago entitled "brief letter to a god defender"---this review was on another site, one that is supposed to be for writers specifically. the review follows.  i wanted to share with my fellow Atheist and was wondering what their own stories might be, for artists who have been threatened. 

 

the "reviewer" wrote the following:

unsympathetic

without asking for sympathy

he still swings

those fists still ever-clenched

unyielding & enduring

jab after

bare-knuckled but far from

barnburning

his ferocity demonstrating that

going the distance is nothing short of an

unspoken certainty

speaking of the constant puking

when there is nothing in his

breadbasket

for i have a rather pertinent question that has been bugging me like

crazy

for a long time

buzzing like a patch of black flies

at the edge of my hairline right at the nape of my neck smack dab in the middle of the month of may

SONNET 18

 

Shall we observe you in a prying way?

Thou art more deceptive and transparent:

As rebels jounce with NATO in the fray,

And summer's war will further reveal your face:
