Your poem has a good format without grammar or spelling distractions. The topic you cover is the contemporary issue that those who rely on force and vapidity to meet their needs are required to confront. Those ones are increasingly required to talk to sensible ones, thus we learn from such talks, the followers of King Silas say we who make sense want to be tyrants to them, which is false, yet they are so scared of their hell they imagine and feel so angry hearing us say what they imagine is false and we do not want to be their tyrants, they yell instead of talk and won't listen, so they do not yet know that after decades of their fear, anger and pleas for pity while they suffer delusions, we are still waiting for a sensible conversation to be allowed to start, and we are still waiting for them to understand we do not want to be their keepers. Normal people cut through all of those issues in a simple, straightforward conversation taking 4 to 6 hours, calmly showing evidence. The core problem is childish king silly-Silas is scared he will be irrelevant unless he is always unproductive and only fighting. Why not seek a normal solution instead? What motivates the silly-Silas types to feel angst, fear and rage in response to the request to be normal instead of being vapid thugs begging for pity and abusing anger to threaten harm?

I'll ignore the repeated  in your text which I trust some technology inserted for you without your informed permission. Sure, letting the people vent anger online where agencies, police and anyone can read it is one of the best ideas of the people, right? After all, that's the purpose of freedom of expression. Never try to solve the problems that are making anyone feel angry, never think about it. The people problem you describe was exactly the same throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Those people that ruin relations have a recipe for it. Always be violent, rude, run away from and try to kill hints of intelligence, never have an idea, run away from conversation, reject winning in order to lose and blame the blasphemy of winning on random organs since all organs do the same thing, invite people to you in order to lock people outside, invite people going up to go down and feign dyslexia, and force all competent people to wait until all the incompetent people try first. The solution is technology. The problem is what we call culture and ethnicity.

Review of LOVE IS SACRED  
Review by Zhen
Rated: E | (3.0)
Grammar first: a dad is anyone, with lowercase D, however the name Dad refers to one specific one, with uppercase D. Also, the comma goes inside the quotes, 'Like that,' he said. The experience of love you expose is what people do and is not love. Animals love with loyalty without the idea of the possibility of betrayal. The relation is, thus builds up, else ain't. We fell from grace thousands of years ago as everyone knows, and that happens when individuals choose to be antithetical to life on Earth, such as by betraying.

Double space paragraphs to make reading easier for readers. You write as though course in Physics and mathematics might interest you since you use words familiar to us in the discipline, however, you are changing the definitions randomly and writing of nonsense, which is okay when in a Dr Seuss type of story. The sun sets in the west, rises in the east. No mystery.

Review of The River  
Review by Zhen
Rated: E | (4.0)
Your poem has no distractions and shows the confusion many people feel, showing it clearly enough so a reader far away from that can empathize. Binary logic has many errors. The way the people who believe in binary logic are trained is done in a rigorous variation of army boot camp. The physical exercises are merely pushing pencil on paper, or typing on a computer. It looks nonviolent. However, the definition of if is so extremely wrong, many students feel perplexed and wonder about it every year. The way the boot camp training happens is the graders and professors gang up in Appeal to Force, Bandwagon, and Appeal to Authority, which are three fallacies we students are told to reject in anyone else and if we reject our logic professors fallacies during boot camp then we get low grades and accused of not understanding and the corrupt senate believes the corrupt professors and the corrupt board of governors believes the
corrupt senate. So in the boot camp phase of the making of a high speed, accurate logician whose only competitor is a computer, the logician is systematically abused at high speed, with computer accuracy, into believing the binary logic religion and believing in the prejudice that allows logicians to make fallacies yet denies everyone else the same liberty to err. I am as strong as Alan Turing although female, this is how I was trained. In left v right, per your poem, binary works as Aristotle, not Boole, intended. In something versus unknown emptiness, the zero type error lets system abuse and system errors happen. Thus I tell people to say something instead of nothing. The other part of the war against me, misled by Keith Johnson, called left to confuse people who care, is really a sea of chaos, confusion and misdirections aimed to reduce the population rather than aimed to reduce the eco footprint, since that side's every utterance is all wrong all the way through, ostensibly to give me something to correct for money, however really identified by governments as information terrorism, and the sick sex obsession they force dominate into every topic is part of how they tried to dominate me, a female mathematical logician. The right cares for the living beings including good people and the left is lying, so the real is not as balanced as your poem indicates.

What happened? Talk to people of what was done. The experience your poem describes was forced on me, too, although I am generous, patriotic, law abiding, the strongest mathematical logician, and female. I will ask you what the skeptics ask me when I was forced to participate in a six year torture campaign called a public trial, without charges, without legal guides. Those attackers, self-called skeptics, asked me what I did wrong to invite abuse from self-willed stupid, prejudiced wannabe slave owners and attempted murderers. I did, and do, everything right. I am glad you are showing your experience and perspective on a predominantly American, increasingly international, site. The self-called skeptics find failed murder attempts to call that dirt against the victim, then ask the victim to explain the dirt to people and police feigning inability to understand what attempted murder is. Maybe what I was required to suffer can make the way forward for Afghans easier to bear. Write on.

Thanks for a story reminiscent of Spartan and Athenian culture, giving people some insight into what may have been happening when people started talking about slavery, democracy and voting. The best warrior reduces all the enemies to rubbish without losing himself or herself, without missing an enemy, and without losing resources in squabbles. Your story describes the way conflicts used to be, back when conflicts were expressed among those that always only talk with fists, unless they are cowards running away from the conversations their own behaviour demans they have. Leonardo da Vinci saw the difference in us, studied it attentively and painted it clearly, showing some individuals communicate only in their muscles flexing and expressing such extremely limited awareness, it is their attention deficit that would lobotomize every one attempting communication with them; whereas some da Vinci paints as having an communicating subtle, gentle, informed and enlightened minds, aware of communication with nature, aware of what may and what cannot. Your Miles Kassius character happens from the culture of fists yet to have died by killing half his foe, he was smart enough to start adapting into the culture of languaged enlightenment without vapidity. The Chinese also have a famous warrior who used to fight, winning some, and then stopped putting resources into fighting in ways which win every battle at full victory without loss. Maybe, if you write a second chapter, Miles' kids will learn the ways of absolute victory.

Review of Under Her Wing  
Review by Zhen
Rated: E | (4.0)
My parents excommunicated me by 1974 when I asked what a negative spoon is, to add to a spoon to make zero spoons, when I was teaching myself subtraction from an arithmetic book I was reading. Chinese children and parents in Beijing talk with me easily, we have interesting conversations. So my parents could have talked with me yet did not. I was isolated from goodness and beat down upon by badness by 1977. I started writing governments regarding policy decisions in 1979. I found what algorithms work for mathematical unification in the early 1990s deliberately, since I was reading for it. I do not like saving people. Autonomous entities in communities work best. I was born in 1970. Real life is not as you write, with an unknown person surrounded by a country Canada all feigning innocence, with results in mathematics, physics, chemistry, economics happening by accident or not having been what is supposed to have happened. Real life is we, I belong to the animal kingdom per Canadian excommunication by criminals calling themselves lawyers, we died alive for sensibility forcibly entering people so we might live our real lives together while we are alive. Your writing got your message through however your valid, real informed perception of the world is a report of a mirage made by liars trying to confuse them, and some of that mirage you write was originally painted into the world by the FSB in Russia in 2013, which maybe you did not yet know and want to know.

Review of Life on Earth  
Review by Zhen
Rated: 13+ | (4.0)
I am going to show you how the Aristotelian system lies to you. Scientists work without awareness of non competitor creationism that exists only by interrupting to fight else would stop existing thus is parasitic, not a competitor. Economists take any two things to make war to make money since economists cannot imagine profit without slavery. Aristotle made mistakes. Logicians teach if 0, 0 is true = if 1, 1 is true = if 0, 1 is true. If what logicians teach is correct then a bare proton and hydrogen with its one electron are identical and the emperor's nonexistent clothes are the same as our clothes and food comes from empty fridges. True, science has not yet fully figured out everything. Occam's Razor rejects ideas about deities. You not knowing what your friend's neighbour's friends' parents' dogs had for breakfast on 11.11.11 at 8:43 a.m. does not imply they do not exist and did not eat breakfast and therefore deities are in everything everywhere. Got it? Not knowing cannot imply knowing not and thus any gibberish. The religious history is land theft, public education, taxation and power. Scarier than when church and state were one is back when church and bank were one.

You write a clear snapshot of life in modern poetic format without spelling or grammar errors to distract. I do not know whose experience you write from or about. You portray a sad life, so sad, it probably was not made by the living being inside, and probably was externally imposed by hatred from outside the living being. I teach English students in Beijing to switch inside away from that negative induction outside, to focus on positives they create. Some can do and grab the idea and run with it, implementing many positive ideas. However, some keep trying, and day after day have only sad and only harmful ideas designed only for making all experiences be hell on Earth, stealing life. Each is the way each is. I do not know you, however, I know the writing prompt 'Say it in a positive way with nourishing ideas and events' will show us who you are.

'Ahead me be rock,
Rising mightily so
No mortal it surmounted
Just until the top. (arrogant stupid technical glitches incapable of accepting grammar differences since the technical glitch makers are brainless, will not let me type a line break suddenly and for no reason other than to interrupt as control freaks too stupid to exist, so, pretend I am allowed to type line breaks to read this response in a normal way) Imagine you to be there up, looking to down where a child lays, in shadow, in ignorance of this rock?'
I wrote the poem in the 1980s to 1990s. I have a collection of such poetry in chezzetcook, nova Scotia, Canada since 2003 when my property was taken from me and withheld from me with nary reason nor permission while I was given to survive serial attempted murder in exchange for negotiating my mother's divorce away from a violent guy that was reported to police for assault and for seeking incest. Your poem called up my memories of my poetry I was writing through my teens and twenties. Thanks. Your poem ends with a thoughtful riddle in the semblance of a typo, it's/its.

Thanks for letting me know some of our species has that experience of communication, love and understanding as I have known only among cats, rabbits, mice, dogs, and fish. You have a typo in the first line of dialogue, 'I missed you said the man.' Had someone loved me I would have stayed, instead, Canadians developed only the negative experiences in me, holding me hostage to absorb their hatred until China permitted me escape and permission to live. From my life experience, I would never entertain the daft notion that a male in our species could feel empathy, consideration, awareness of a living being apart from himself and not as a slave for him to abuse for free, and instead, I know them only as combative liars greedy beyond measure. So I appreciate your story for showing a preferable side of life.

Review of Darkness  
Review by Zhen
Rated: E | (3.5)
Red black, blue black and yellow white form a clock oscillating together, harmonic. The red black produces the outer shell, the blue black produces the spinal vertebraic sheaths through the shell interior, the yellow whites lashes out never a willing victim and never free, slicing perpendicular into the blue black spines sliced perpendicularly into the red black shell's heart of darkness. The yellow white is the star we see, this time for responsible liberty.

Good writing on a fashionable topic. Be careful of 'you' versus 'your' in your spelling.

4 *Star* : You show some original thinking. The most common form of False Dichotomy happens when a life situation is interpreted as planar while real life happens in R^n [Euclidean n-dimensional space]. A different dishonesty happens via false statements or brute force merely cutting off all except for two bad options. Left vs Right is often a False dichotomous presentation of real life -- true also in arithmetic. For example, China is rising, lead by Hong Kong -- some who believe in economic incorrect arithmetic algorithms could fear we must therefore fall due to the false notion that "good for A = bad for B". Economists have some followere who believe that 2=0. Reality includes our global financial recovery together via finite state machines -- which I mention to introduce some hint of into which realities the electrocuted boy in your story could have gone. The story you wrote has the potential to explain mathematically informed real life to the general population via the appeal of a really good story. You have talent.

Good structure keeps the piece clean and easy to read. Sentences flow, paragraphs tell miniature stories (they have a beginning, a middle and an end); and the flow of paragraphs actively moves toward an end.

*Flower4*Content (The quality of information disseminated)*Flower4*

Does your work move its type ~ (what it is) ~ to a new level? If not, how close does it get?

*Balloon1* Please use {xlink:} to link us to the info page on John P. Sousa that you think is most relevant for your readers to see.

*Balloon2* Shakespeare wrote in his sonnets about the economics of being the source of inspiration, and got quite to the point when stating that if the source of inspiration exists outside our ecosystem (like the Orion Nebula) then it's okay to keep it out of our economy, but when the source exists inside our ecosystem then excluding it from our economy is the same as theft, and depending on the strength of exclusion, murder. Reference: sonnet starting with "Whilst I alone did call upon thy aid...  ".

The fact that it is in development makes it far more charming than a well-finished version would be as an introduction to the form, so for anyone's first palindromic exercise, I like this one the best exactly the way it is right now.

Hi Dollzell,

What a nice surprise your review of my item was to see. Thank you. Yes, Regret is a real letter I wrote to a real friend who died that real way. I had to find a way to say what there was to say. She is a cat.

I think that by the time we start to write poetry, our hearts are filled with the footprints of those we have opened ourselves to, even if only to some degree. Your poem touches an experience so many of us share after one or another in a relationship has given up and taken an easy path out. But perhaps I am reading too much of one culture into your poem and missing another perspective. (There is far more staying strength in some cultures & sub-cultures than in others.) Love touches us all.

Hi Luis De La Fuente !

*Balloon1* Thank you for sharing your writing process so openly. You've outlined steps that would let anyone be successful in writing their first book. What would make this aspect more interesting is including links to books you have written this way - demonstrate your success! *Delight*

*Balloon2* The writing reads as a draft rather than as a polished copy of what you want to say. As a draft, it is well written and seems to me to be complete. In a final version, it's fine to mix first, second and third person due to the narrative of sharing how you write and how you see that helping other people. Your draft does help people. How many more people will this part of your work inspire after you edit it a bit more? *Wink*

All in all, I felt happy to read these thoughts that you share. Thank you.

Hi,

Your poem speaks well of the gods of today. I like that you mention how our minds do connect with each others and with something out there through cable TV, the internet, emailed news. Across the globe we are pulling each other closer together and I like the way you say this, too. Is your spelling of 'sandwhich' intentional? I hope that your god has less snark with time.

Review of Humanitus

A snapshot of life as we know it
and cannot bear it to be.

Is this poetry?

Slithering prose capture the creature's sacrifice
(or is the sacrifice human?)
no more self left to feed the hungry.
"Die," it says, "Die."

The old question was whether to feed or to give a skill,
but no god considered that some people would stand for other people who answer
This question
with
"Give neither food nor skill! Kill! Kill! Kill!"
God stands not for such people and instead chooses
the question: food or skill?

Die not for feelings but rather for withholds.
Freedom and love are found in our minds.

Let us mend the hearts of the few who choose the question
together
remaking the fabric of life,
that is god.

Let us be human again.

Mastery of language is choosing exactly the word you want to make the phrase you want so the whole thing works as you intend. Too often, we choose words that we think will do the trick, and in fact they don’t do very well. What some authors find the least helpful is a focus on grammar and spelling; they may feel it’s not very helpful in terms of overall writing improvement. However, typos take a reader’s attention away from the writing’s purpose. Too much repetition counts as a typo. Sometimes rules can be broken, but only if it’s right for the story or context in which the broken rule occurs.

4.5*Star* : I found nothing to distract me! However, I feel the statement, “Like a knight, on he mounted; Down he counts: Coming o’ splendid morrow!” is punctuation-heavy. How do you feel about it?
