Another comment po.em created from the back and forth between Mark and myself. The word games continue. My comments are in italics. You will find more of Mark’s work @: Coloring Outside the Lines and project21words. Particularly interesting this round, is our overlapping of lines yet forming very separate and distinct po.ems and voices. See his excellent Beware of Words using the same comment thread.

words are snares

     sprung in the darkness of lies

          laughing in the face of truth

               slight sliver of a smile

devils dancing in eyes

     demons delighting in hearts

deceit makes a cozy bed

desire embracing the void

   but beware

the voice of the flesh
