Ben! I noticed it seemed quiet on here the past week and you hadn't posted anything in that amount of time (a week feels like forever in my eyes lol). Hope you've been well, though.
Your sonnets are beautifully striking as always, and your voice carries such emotion and history in every verse. The most thought-provoking line for me was "we shot our 'peace' from cannons and from guns". Profound piece, Ben.
