iron masked fighter

Wassily Kandinsky Red Spot II 1921

iron masked fighter

masked iron master clone faces world
power magnified more times than not

wooden mallet
platinum breath
standard armor
nobleman’s helmet
shield of ice
flamed bow
wolf sword moves
like mist

embrace challenge in two-handed dialogue
laser shoot aesthetic arrowhead elements

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  4. When I first saw this picture, I had the instant impression of ice hockey. As if he’s half drawn a wooden hockey stick, and then also, half drawn helmets and swords for fencing (in the white and black shapes top left) So, your capture kind of ‘fits’ with what the picture ‘spoke’ of to me.
