This post is under revision. It will be back up within a few days

Getting sicker with every new cure
Clearcutting today to secure tomorrow
Fleeing a grief beyond sorrow
Avoiding death by deadening ourselves
Not seeing beneath our herdprints
The crushed yet leafy reach of another us
Divided we stand calling for peace
Reducing love to an ideal
Chaining attention to mindchatter
Pilgrims at the crossroads are we
Stuck in well-educated knots & fashionable headlocks
The sky opening for us is but the ceiling
Of our loftiest thought
Pilgrims at the crossroads are we
Missing what is more secure than security
More moral than morality
More significant than meaning
Fear’s the threshold
And even the ticket Home
When we hold the dragon’s heart

Could be a hit or miss. Edit functions lock up after a certain amount of time has passed - by the time you return to this thread, you may not even have the option to delete it. Something to keep in mind if you don't intend to make a new post.

My editor wanted to take another look at it; so I should have an edited copy later tonight or tomorrow; how do I delete threads?

There should be a square button with an "X", next to the edit function. If it isn't there, however, you can no longer delete your thread - the better option may be to create a new one with your revised content, especially if you find you cannot edit after a few days have passed.
