Heroic Crown Progress

Quoth the poet, "Furthermore".

This crown has been on my mind lately. It's an extension of myself, in that it is myself, and also not. Meh. Pretty standard metaphysical nonsense.

I guess I forgot to mention here that I won't be posting the end product, due to the fuzziness surrounding the word "published" in relation to poetry. Basically, I'd like to have the option to publish this at some point, and when publishers want first print rights, that includes the internet.

If you want it though, let me know, I'll get it to you somehow. It may arrive late in the month accompanied by a knock on the door but no messenger, written in illegible hand inside a dirty moleskin notebook, but arrive it will.

Anyways, like I said, I've been thinking about crowns lately. This one, yes, but others... I've got about 5 outstanding ideas. And by 'outstanding' I mean that they haven't been written yet, not that they're fantastic in some way. If you find me scribbling iambic pentameter in a coffeeshop somewhere, please put a piece of paper in front of the waving pen so that I can remember what I was writing.

Thanks in advance for your support.
