The Poem Is Played!
Read everyone else's poems at Salome Ellen!
Yes! It's finally up! =D Ellen won't have to put my name on the WALL OF SHAME!
And now I'm free to read all your poems, too. =) Thanks for playing, everyone!
Now just one "administrative" question to get out of the way: Is anyone up for hosting Word & Question in November? =)
Question: Is that really what you're trying to say?
Too milquetoast a metaphor
won't get a toe inside the door.
Sometimes it takes hyperbole:
this tiny dart could fell a tree.
My tongue has leave to shoot away
when I know what I want to say.
It's a very oblique answer to the question, I admit, but if you fill in the contextual blanks, it can make sense! =P
And now for a second question: Why is it that I take longer and longer to write poems but that they end up shorter and shorter???
