219 (who?)
                                    "an explosion", she said
                 I turned to ask her what she was talking about when I
       caught sight of the tv screen, and for the tiniest of moments I caught
    myself thinking that there's something beautiful about that much energy and
 so much destruction; energy - would it wipe me off my feet? maybe melt the skin
right off of my bones? heat, death and poison, I don't believe there's much you or I
would be able to feel dying in those flames, and I should probably be ashamed that I
                            sitting comfortably in my living room
                              but a lot of people die everyday
                     and to decide to cry for all of them would be
                              to give up breathing for yourself
Concrete poetry has been a mystery to me for a long time; today, I decided to give it another go.

Form inspired by this picture.

I was just revisiting some of the literature in my favourites and it struck my quite vividly again - just how mind-blowingly perfect the flow of this poem is. It's like a little creek or a scarf slipping off the table and the composition of ideas is just-

Then you went and reflected it perfectly in the visual form-

The story is so simple, but it hits the reader right in the heart and just quivers for a little. I, for one, can't stop thinking about it. Thank you for writing this!
