I tip the crystal goblet of my soul
And pour out the water of mercy
But it cuts like exploding shrapnel

Comments about Borer-Worms by Rod Mendieta

    WHIP UP OR whip out? either way, not very nice. naughty, naughty!

    very fanciful. a dream? it seems to go from 1 - something YOU do causing harm..TO 2 - things you offer backfiring on you, .. TO 3 - a magical force being playful with worms.


    p.s. those sharp teeth don't seem grapeful.

    , you're right again: it's definitely whip out. My, what big eyes you have there!

    Yes Bri, and evil thoughts boring in to the center of our minds possibly compounding all things... But on a lighter note, with a little effort one might just get a glimpse of the Evil Magicians and then be forwarned. Thanks for the comments!

    A surreal poem of exhilarating images. Lines three and four are quite outstanding, Rod and the whole first rate.
    It's going into my favourites' list.
