Explaining Winning The War Within

The Slow as Molasses Press

Stephen C. Rose's original sonnets 
follow Shakespeare precisely 
in meter and rhyme scheme 
Yet their contemporary themes 
and lack of punctuation 
signal something deep and new 
You meet not only the author but yourself.
Rose's sonnets range from a description 
of profound loneliness in cyberspace 
to a remarkable testament to 
post-postmodern faith and reason 
Winning The War Within 
is a profound, accessible meditation 
about what we can and cannot know 
and winning the 
continuing battle within.


The binary beast is the binary nightmare

The Slow as Molasses Press

The binary beast is the binary nightmare 
that cannot reach beyond two
The binary beast cannot see
cannot think
of the evil it puts us all through

The binary beast
tells Ukrainian rebels
to fire at things they can't see
And if a child dies
leaving only a notebook
They gulp out their innocent plea

The binary beast
is demonic and smooth
and can harness a President too
It can harness a nation
to be blind to all
that the power of THREE can do

Graceful Security
