Please forgive our words
She’s having her way with me
We’re lost far at sea

WAVINGNWEAVING

Waving to weavers
While weaving while wondering
Why weave and why why
While weaving while wandering
Wondering, weaving, waving

This is dedicated to all readers who are also writers, and especially those who may be called – by themselves or by others – poets.

Iambic I Am

IAMBIC I AM

I lie awake
(Hopefully)
Within iambic

I spring (Yeah right)
To wakefulness
Within iambic

The poet’s life
Spread forward like a map
I am therefore iambic

String Of Lights (30c)

STRING OF LIGHTS

Uniting
Poets illumine
Your dark night
Of the soul
Passing the torch down the years
Lightening the load

Anthology (30a)

ANTHOLOGY

Gathered here
Layers of one’s life
Sliced sidewise
Unexposed
Sundry interpretations
One for each poem

Less Is More (5b)

LESS IS MORE

Shadorma
A poetic form
At its best
Singular
Or so I have decided
Experimenting

MARGARET III

Someone once
(pontificating)
Announced that all my poems
Were merely songs

But then
She was ridden by demons so I
(mostly)
forgave her

Special Delivery: Four By Six

SPECIAL DELIVERY

Sit back and let it be.
Recite, “Aware, aware.
Relax, relax.”; await
till the muse delivers.

Impasto Imposter

IMPASTO IMPOSTER

(For shame: further unwarranted symbolisms)

The page has not – not – loaded completely
Something went wrong – went wrong – went wrong

Wiring went wrong – Went AWOL – Went haywire – Rewire

Digital – Digitail – Digitool – Digitall – Digitalis

Intent – Intention – Unintention – Unintended

I Robot – I Roboot – I Reboot – I Reboot – I Reboot

Recovering no now nor now nor neither truth
Nor whatever else once or twice passed for truth

Back then, back there, back in the day
Back it up – Backpack it – Pack it in

Back then back when we postured as one
As one posing as posing as posed as one

As apposite – Or as in opposition
Or as apposite as possible

Or as I – As I – Let’s admit it
As I – uninvited – scammed

(For shame: further unwarranted symbolisms)

This Gem

This gem is dedicated to my U.S. “followers”. (What an unfortunate term that is.) My thoughts are frequently with you in your plight.

At times I think satire is all that’s left. Other times I see it differently.

And there’s always poetry.
