  8. Dear melody, hope this finds you well. clocked your poem on a reblog from a pal of mine (and rightly so, great poem). Reading the comments here makes me aware i am not alone in thinking that ‘Choreography of the damned’ is a magnificent line, made me think and re-think and read the poem over and over. Well done, m’lady, excellent piece. Keep smiling and keep writing, kind regards from Baldy πŸ™‚
