An object-oriented poem.

Are there at least 2 other people planning on submitting? If so, I'll extend the round another week. If not, I'm going to call this one dead. I've seen no one else express an interest in submitting this round.

Oh, what the hell. There's no reason to let this die when I have written something recently, polished or not.

Steam Engine

I pilot a curious engine
of pudgy fitted coats upon a
flimsy calcite frame.
The armored exterior submits to every
errant untamed ghost of pressure
placed against its shell.

There is a gleam of black on black
I almost do not see. A feathered scout
perched upon the night
cocks its head from the other side.
Perhaps the double-pane is a focusing lens
or its sights are granted mine are not;
I do not know--
but while my fuels are fumes
and hours of operation long,
it sees that from my unseen exhaust
weak steam burst forth does not.

Two submissions...

If you two want to duke it out in the voting period alone, I'll open up the voting period for the rest of the month. The other option, which is the default, is to allow this round to fall through and you'll be able to resubmit your entries in January for the Freeform round if you desire to do so. Personally, I say resubmit next month, but that's my opinion.

What the... wasn't there a third one? I swear Zeality had PM'd something in. I think I'm going crazy, and that's saying something since that already happened a while ago.

A new challenger appears!
Don't want to let this come down to a no vote situation, and I happen to have written a poem somewhat recently. Just something I was experimenting with, since I'm usually not a poet.If it's not too late. If it is, I'd like to throw down for next month's resubmit. Either way, here you go:

Mother is Dead

The sky turned black, the day you died
and never did turn back
Even after you rose again,
I kept you alive when I lied

You were no more, whom death defied
when knocking at his door.
But to be fair, what ventures far
that returns again untried?

Was it I, who made you decide
to start it all anew?
You chose to be a man of strength
enough to throw the old aside.

I am a-part, essential and outside,
discarded from your heart.
Close to the Blind Fate stole from you
A reminder you denied.

Father what’s left when tears are dried?
Were you the more bereft?
I stay to fight for your remains;
the scraps that you provide.

Alright, we'll try for a vote this round. Since this is starting late, if votes are sparse, I'll nullify them and have you guys resubmit for Freeform in January.

This round's submissions are:

genesis.mwx by M W
Steam Engine by Imagist
Mother is Dead by Darklink42

Everyone, and I mean everyone, should vote! Voting ends at the end of the month!

My NaNoWriMo attempt failed, but I figured I'd link what I had and possibly get some feedback on it.

If you have any last-minute votes, now's the time. I'm giving it until the end of today (the 1st) before calling it.
