This poem is the same as the last poem.


“This poem is just the same as the last one.”
“Why?” you ask.
“Well…” I begin, “It uses the same words.”
“Yes?” 
“Just in a different order.”
“Oh.”
“And it’s written in English.”
“Sì.”
“Precisely. I never vary it at all. Ever! I even write it like it’s not a poem… when ‘inside’ it really is.”
“No. There is no ‘po-et-ry’ at all in the above.”
“True. But, that’s what I love about writing. It knocks on my door; I open the door; and ‘poetry’ stands there ‘inviting’.”
“I see. However, can I just say one thing to you…?”
“To me?”
“Sì! You are a spirit free; and what you do with your words is fine by me.”
“Really?”
“Nah! Just trying to support your fragile reality.”
“Cheeky!”

These Are Just Some Of The Words That I Use.


There was too much tension

To mention…

So, I won’t.
And, don’t think

That I may do so later;

I have never been a hesitater;

But, maybe there is a first time

For a mentional tensional rhyme

Or would that be a crime?

No, that’s enough of that.

Morbid Parody of the Day #DuranDuran


Names on Stone (Girls on Film) by Duran Duran
…Names on stones

(It must be a graveyard)

Names on stones.
NB I don’t really need to say any more – I think that my work is done here.

This is not a Haiku #HaikuNot

After the rain, a rainbow

Today is not a day

For a stroll with a troll

Or a jog with an og.
Today it is raining

But, I’m not complaining;

The grass needs a shower.
And they call this Summer;

So why are we surprised

When it feels like Autumn.
And when I say ‘Autumn’

Not a warm, mild Autumn;

But, a really damp one.
However, with weather,

Remember the saying

After the rain, a rainbow.

In Italy (#italiano)

… there was una ragazza, un lupo e una mela rosso.
