* Literary Critics Butchering Young Writers - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

to conceptualize
sensuous workings
of imagination
tenderfoot shavings
first writings

critics
vicious kill
noble beings
young writers
imerging

ghastly vivisection
cuts tissues
of pulsating
thrashing organs
seeking secrets

functions fleeing
still warm body
in writ suicide attempts
to understand thoughts
first trial quivering

expressions
harsh critics
murder intolerant
young writings
attempting

transformations
critic slashes
young writers
too often clearly
condemned

to death
before final
breath taken
post-mortem
examination...

    Every form of art is personal, meaningful and important. Those who have only negative criticism, should think twice before stifling an artist who is trying. Thank you Terence. (Report) Reply
