  1. From that first explosion of a sentence (glittery explosion!) to the … well, the whole thing, I love all of this 💜 I may give Blackout-Prose a go soon – bet you could have predicted I would 😉

    • You are much braver than I am when it comes to NaPoWriMo. I only did it once, and probably never will again. I can’t write 30 poems in 30 days, but I can’t see having enough time to visit other people. So, just a handful for me.

  2. Oh boy…so good….this hit me harder than my morning coffee…and that, Girl, is saying something. Delicious.

  3. Just that first sentence on its own blew my mind, Magaly! I also love the alliterative ‘tongue-treasures caress and cut’ and the assonance and imagery of ‘brewing tales that howl poetry’.

  4. You always have the coolest creative ideas.. and this is certainly the home of cacophony at its best.. Lust for words is a passion I can relate to.

  5. Oh those authors that leave us breathless with the wonders they build! There is a lovely bliss that steals over me after an extremely satisfying session of reading, not entirely dissimilar from those moments after other heady joys.

  6. language was a system of black and white scrawls that taught without touching, then he came (like a lie that knows fictions can be real) and made me feel words.

    dizzy heights! dizzy heights! you grab us and sweep us right into the rush – and those lines I’ve pulled? smashingly Fabulous!

    Truly a whirlwind beautiful piece here – you’ve rocked it so well! Happy 30/30 or NaPoWriMo!

  7. A lot of the time when I read your words they prompt visual and olfactory messages to drift into my awareness. This time I got the sense of a sultry summer night and the distinct smell of freshly bitten mango! Juicy in ever which (witch?) way!
