a star dies
shatter 2D statues
for karmic slivers
in blinding field
of minus signs

Steve has such a fantastic voice within his writing. His style is both unique and original. His powerful lines speak 1000 words beyond what is viewed, and the mind is always freed to take whatever direction it feels within the pieces. I have no doubt I could pick out his work in a sea of thousands…I am particularly drawn to the word play and rhythm in this write. Fierce is a word I like to use to describe his work.
LOVE his blog.
I like short lines that say so much such as these. great poem, thank you.
good stuff there, Steve!
