"I get up every morning determined
both to change the world
and to have one hell of a good time.
This makes planning the day difficult." (E.B. White)
"The first line of a poem is a hawk which won't let go of its prey."
---Gabriel Preil, as quoted in Writing Changes Everything

Ooh, fierce! Like that!
A gripping description, achieving the effect it describes.
Oh, I love this wild, predatory side of poetry!
