nagging words pace
along idle fingertips
itching for peace to descend
blinking cursor laughs
at the empty battlefield
armed and ready to bleed black
An Aside: Working off my phone, so I have limited functionality. I'll add in links tomorrow when I have access to a computer with Internet.
A Form Aside: This is a take on the sedōka, an ancient Japanese form dating back to the choka and tanka; it is composed of two katauta [5/7/7]. When I first came across this form (on ShadowPoetry.com), it was mentioned that the form "may address the same subject from different perspectives." I've always liked that idea.
