for Black Wire Engine

Very fresh and unique! Good job. I like how you're in-and-out of rythem, rules be damned. I feel rules are restrictive, too.

Two lines really caught my eye, meaning they contain special value too me:

"The black wire engine can run its destruction

With an innocent heart as its coal-"

Very good. Write on!

Good! I really like the last six lines, which seem to explain what's going on. A story surfaced as I read them. The imagery of black wires carries through nicely and gives this a tinge of wierdness. There was a dawning, vivid picture of a frightening city. I can't say I like the use of the ellipses; I'm not sure what they're supposed to evoke besides hesitancy. Otherwise, pretty good.

I love the idea.

A maze, a city of black wires where everyone who enters gets lost. Pretty awesome. (:

I especially liked the line 'With an innocent heart as its coal'. I'm not sure why, but I pictured a furnace full of burning hearts. The one mistake I think I caught was in 'Isn’t it lovely, out city of wires', where I think you meant 'our' instead of 'out'?

Great job!
