The internal rhyme was great and each description hit home! My fav line is Coordinates, a mystery.

I don't usually go in for HH poetry but something told me to read yours and I'm so glad I did. This was just awesome. You did such a wonderful job of this.

A beautiful oiece of work. (at 60, I've forgotten most of what I learned in school-AP Engish for Americans on here-about poetry terms etc. But I know when I like something and when something is well-done.

Within the first and last verse, you've given us a remarkably, concise look at our heroes. Like another reviewer stated, I also appreciate the use of duty for Hogan, not mentioning Carter's perceived youth.

Great work.

One thing that I wish the people in charge of HH hadn't done. In the pilot episode, it was stated outright that Newkirk had been a magician, and a successful one, in civilian life. This is where he got his sleight of hand and lock-picking abilities. As the show progressed, though, Newkirk began to be portrayed as a petty criminal instead. I wish they'd kept the original backstory.

Very nice. It always amazes me how you can paint such a clear picture with few words- poetry is a hard craft, but you use it so well.

I like how you've chosen to describe each hero. You've summed up their struggles and strengths perfectly.

From the standpoint of the craft, I’m fascinated by the way the rhyme scheme doubles back on itself (cornerstone/backbone and thief/belief, for example). It somehow makes each miniature portrait more conversational. I’m not sure if there’s a technical name for the pattern, but it’s sort of a jagged rhyme to my mind and I like it a great deal.

As for the miniatures, well, you capture an essential quality of each one, and it’s not the quality of the typical caricature. I like that you emphasized duty for Hogan, not his glib wit or crazy luck or wild schemes. And I’m always grateful not to read “young” when I read about Carter. Optimism, though — and, yes, a degree of skill that others underestimate. That's Carter!

What a remarkable and accurate summation of the characters and their mission! Brilliant!

Beautifully explored.
I love the capstones on this piece.
The beginning and ending verses ... the contrast in them is perfect
They rhythm of this piece fits the tone. Rapid and fluid.

Excellent! But then, your poems always are. I'm not much of a poetry fan in general but I couldn't pass yours up. Thanks for writing!
