Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


“Oh Emma, my cherished and unholy soulmate;
Woman of air! Raw phrases leap with love and hate.
Behind glasses seethes a romantic, daring the night
August child of gothic verse, lines we all recite.

Yet , when soirees roll, your flame the men desire;
It surprises me how that glance changes like fire!
In class, we ignite our teachers’ ire with naughty quirks
Creating romps as the batch mimes our theatrics.

Tonight, we pluck more wild seeds of younger memoirs
Still coloring our lives as time waits for girl- hours.”

* Emma is a dear friend way back in college. As an activist,
 writer, and down-to-earth woman, she graduated with cum laude
honors. We regularly meet up to bond and nourish our friendship.
