Hey Matt . . .

HUGE Challenge but a good one
unfortunately I am not quite that
insane to do that again so here is
mine and LP's from a while ago
(I am still seeing all those numbers)

Hope it suits this challenge:

I loved your sestina, Muted - I put my comments on the main page. But, I wanted to write here as well.  Wonderful!  I also am working on writing a sestina.  Wow.  Now this is definitely a challange.  I understand your pain eor!  ;-)  I did a couple that are not good and started a couple alright ones that I can't seem to finish. I lose it somewhere after the third stanza.  Anyway.. I'm working on it.  Great job Muted.  Keep up the work eor!
