That's marvelous, Stewart. A brilliant display of poetical fireworks. Vesper's sig is back to semi-normal size again, thank the mods. I know I said we could relate anything we posted back to poetry somehow, but I am having difficulty with the Pegasus Descending post. Perhaps the author's prose is somehow a derivative of poetry. Or maybe, there's a poem at the beginning of each chapter. The dedication could be a poem..but let's hope it isn't. Maybe James Lee Burke uses a cipher and his books are really just encoded poems. Not having read said book, I am at a loss. Perhaps muggle is just very clever and it is the text within the post itself that relates to poetry, and he throws in the book name just to throw us off. Any further suggestions?
