Those words, not mine, I covet

These hands, not yours, I feign

If twain should e’er meet and trade places

They’d parley a language, profane

  1. I’m really excited about this because you use language from another time, and you do so without needing the conspiratorial wink that usually goes with such style.

    I enjoy that language because it’s a fast track to a certain frame of mind (and one which I find pleasurable), and it leans heavily on suggestion.

    1. It must be a result of all the classical music I’ve been listening to while editing 😛

      Quick unrelated question: how infuriating would it be if I ended chapter 7 at around 2,500 words? (That comes out to less than half of what I usually post, but you know how much I love cliffhangers, and this spot is practically begging for it…)
