A Found Poem about the War in Syria

Clash with Syria
could be windfall
It is difficult to argue with General Smedley Butler: http://.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_is_a_Racket
How you achieve such a lightness in patterned complexity …well, I appreciate this maturity. It’s heartening considering the subject.
Thank you j.h. I just go at it until it feels ‘right.’ So strange working digitally. Sometimes it seems like it’s not there at all. The weight of it must be about the delineation – coordinating these edges with the light. And the subject, I know. Who can bear it even from such a distance.
you really scratched deeply below the surface here my friend – hit it right on – good one…
Thank you John. There it was staring at me. An utterly remorseless dollars and cents business report. The human my mother taught me to be was offended. This feeling generated the images. I know you know that artistic process but it bears repeating if only for me to remember things like childhood.
Stirring work, Steven.
Thank you Karen. Had to offer my equivalent of a pencil line to the discussion.
