Poet's Fortune Cookie

Don't rip your heart open too deep
(All they'll see are the valves and the veins)
Don't puke out your guts in one heap
(All they'll smell is the rotten Chow Mein)

    oooh, what a picture this is, Tim!! I had to come way back here to your last page. I already saw you front page poems. Hey, you called this iambic pentameter, but iambic pentameter means "sonnet beat" The pentameter stands for five beats per line, and the iambic stands for unstress/STRESS . Which of course you repeat five times. Hope that explanation helps. LUv, Andrea
