image: forged in time

the staccato waltz

of razor blade against strop

while leech proboscis awaits skin

the fireworks of sword blade

pounded on forge’s anvil

to churn the enemies’ soil blood red

protean executioner

waxing walnut axe handle

pull back starched collar of treason

And the crowd waits to surge forward

to trample hero and villain

innocent and guilty

warrior and pacifist

in their rush for front row

Used 10/12 of Yves’ excellent wordle words from Wordle #116. Fireworks very appropriate!

        You should never entertain doubt, Phylor–everything you post is full of riches.

I love dialogue. Do you?
