Awwwwwww......this is magical, Soldier and Cowgirl! As in magical! I'm sorry but for the number one fan of #TT, this just made me so happy for reasons I don't understand...hehe. Form-wise this is so excellent but content wise...there is magic in the honesty and pure friendship in this! #TT Forever. hahaha
Personally I love this piece because I feel like it describes an aspect of living in an age with so much technology and how so many of us meet know and love these people around us, only we don't know the exact timber of their voices or the full color of their stories. And I know that I've dabbled in this idea myself or knowing someone without ever really "meeting" them, so I love seeing that it can successfully be penned and explained. But even more than that, and specifically to this piece, it was incredible that a piece so lengthy and lingering on the edge of boring in the format department was able to entice me so much. That really shows that Tony has found a great sense of voice and word choice, which are so very invaluable to poets - especially when the piece is a little long winded or maybe not the most creative in other aspects. Great write and I'm so happy to have come across this this week.
Personally, I love this piece because it is "obviously" a conversation between two talented poets each playing off of the other's last stanza, not creative in the least you guys. Tsk tsk tsk... but what do I know? And my short attention span made it really hard to keep up with this long winded piece... you should shorten it to 4 stanzas so we can keep up.
