Some Metaphorical Speaking Sunku

As thorns
Might peck ****s
And kick ***es

Bullets
End the lives
With no mercy

Her words
(Soft fabrics)
Kill with cold blood

Very interesting! Not sure how I feel about the self-censorship. I'm not even sure what the first censored word was supposed to be. When I think of thorns, I think of them pricking fingers. When I think of something being pecked, it is eyes or faces being pecked by a bird.

Nonetheless, the transition from the kicking of the butts to the brutal death of bullets, to the cold-blooded nature of the words, despite their softness, is really great, thought-provoking. It is also something different than what many sunku might otherwise be about (pastoral/peaceful/etc), which I think is a good challenge.

Take care,
Kelsey

really great to see you on my page. I am not sure about how good is the idea of using bad/rude words when it comes to poetry. I always think of poetry as something elite, that's why I prefer not to be so open whilst using such words.
Maybe pins or needles instead of thorns work better.
Anyway I am happy to know the images of transition work for you.
Really appreciate your visit and the comment higgly dear!

my vote. I too, was intrigued by the self-censorship and not sure what the first one meant. As you might have seen in my previous attempts at Sunku, I also had the flavor of darkness sewn into the poem. I guess that it is the nature of our souls to push the limits and break away from tradition. I wish that you had let yourself go and just written the words that were on your mind. ~ Gee.

I don't think it's too hard to guess the intended "starred" words. I am more concerned with the whole idea. If the message is well delivered then the mission is accomplished and I think it is.
Highly appreciate reading my words and leaving such a comment
