Brilliant use of contrast and: Brilliant use of contrast and irony. As always, you weave human drama with an innate understanding of what will move us deeply.   "No one is safe or cozy" Amen to that!

Forgive me for this second: Forgive me for this second comment, which I hope is not an intrusion; but I just had to visit this amazing poem yet again.  Especially the first and last stanzas, and the next to last stanzas.  The poem reminds me of another poem, by Robert W. Chambers, a wonderfully frightening poem he titled, "Cassilda's Song," about the lost, mythical city, Carcosa.  But I like your poem better.

If Out, Open Private Messaging: . Being a woman is not the same as being a female. Women are androgynist because we challenge, engage, compete in professions that are male dominated. I have been cubbyholed before I realized that id a dead end. I am always at odds with things as they are. It is the mnd that moti ates, hormones are usually in the way. I spent the last 50 years breaking out of molds. Inferior to no one anywhere - in time oppression is identified and rejected because it is an untruth. I've walked free since 19, I've had black men tell me I'm too smart or too competitive. They were running around trying to find when here is all that is possible. . Every one is different. Genetics set it up that way - it is a wonder we survived. i am 70 and going back to see what humans have devolved to. Conversations and reading should top off what is known and some of what can be inculcated. A good life, helped a few on my way here, left some books, legacy is in grandson at university. Chivalry is dead, women reject it. . Cutting is stupid. . Hang in and find whatever is findable, explore wih no preconceptions - always be surprised and embrace it as a part of everything. Like God is everything not limited to being a mere male principle. . Peace . ...a .

Starward commented on: O SOUL by PUSHKVA 4 days 5 hours ago
Reading this seventeen months: Reading this seventeen months after my first reading of it, I find that the poem has two centers of gravity---the stanza that begins O desperate soul! and the last seven lines.  To and from these two sections, the whole poem flows, and the two stanzas cimpliment each other both poetically and theologically.  I liked the poem very much when I first read it; and I like it now even more that I have realized where its two sources of verbal power are located.  Bravo!, and thank you for posting this magnificent poem.

For some reason, I thought of: For some reason, I thought of WWI, which, if I recall correctly, was called the Emperors' or Empires' war.  I like the way your brief lines presented the emotion in the poem.
