Golden Death March  
All this crazy, blood, battle, Greece and Persian poetry is really starting to get to my head. I'm getting obsessed, you guys, and it's fabulous! I have an idea for a book of poetry now about this period in history, or perhaps, maybe even several different periods of history. I'm thinking of turning my focus onto this full force and trying to write something at least once a day. I want to call my book "Golden Death March." 
Good God I'm so damn morbid! 
What's really great though is that it's actually very freeing. Death is so heavy that sometimes when you release just a little bit through disgusting honesty and own your sick fascination, you find that you're beginning to let go of it a bit. It's very much a catharsis-like experience, and I feel that I'm really growing from it.
Also, this is somethign that I'm so excited about that I want to do it reguarly. Instead of turning on the TV after I finished my day and mentally chiding myself for not writing on my novel for the 48th day in a row, I cant wait to sit down at the computer and start hacking my thoughts away into some poetic form. I compare it to exercise-- don't you find you are much more successful when you are doing something you like?? no matter at what pace or in what form??

Ugghh... I hate that you're right on the excercise & that you're doing it instead of talking about doing it (me).

Sorry for not having much feedback for you on the poetry. Honestly, you & I are so different stylistically that I feel a little foreign reading you, so I don't have a whole lot to say (if that doesn't sound too pedestrian).
