Very impressive craftwork, Tailor...Poetic brevity is a penumbra of sorts...as well as a most complex facet of the Art....Your masterfull attention to structure, rhythm and well placed imagwork makes 'NOT THIS DAY', a perfect day for this Poem. '''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''FJR/fjr
