THE WRITER’S CODE

Unflinchingly support
All those who soldier on
Striving against the tide
Building a sane future

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

Anthology (30a)

ANTHOLOGY

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

Spellmeister (21b)

SPELLMEISTER

Lets go words
Lets go images
String quartets
Pirouettes
Drops intent, spins and teases
Patterns from chaos

The Wee Hours (20a)

THE WEE HOURS

Three o’clock
Bells ring and all’s well
Up early
Early start
And it’s shoulder to the wheel
Keeping life at bay

Less Is More (5b)

LESS IS MORE

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

Margaret III

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

(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)
