SLAUGHTER

SLAUGHTER

Slowly they slither
surrepticiously
from dark hidden places
when suddenly they strike
tongue needle sharp
deep
deep into the heart
to the death of all Beauty

UNA MATANZA
piano piano scivolano
da luoghi nascosti nel buio
quando all' impproviso
colpiscono
con lingua tagliente
profondo
profondo nel cuore
per la morte
di tutta Belleza

you're talking about words here joe. If so, yes I agree they are killers.
Well put indeed.
Is thr repetitive of deep in separate lines intentional? I don't think you even need to repeat it but the piece is yours and you know better.

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Words it is.. "deep" 2x was an intentional hyperbole.
