Best Nette Onclaud Poems

+ Fav Poet


Your metal head has a mind of its own When paper chase rushes to meet deadline, Pointed teeth decide to clump together Jamming the bar with those sharp incisors; I push a thin nail file under delicate wire To unfasten those molars from a tangled bind My palms whacking the ledge, in mid-scale of rage. Braces still twist in clusters, don’t have time Loosening your clipped mouth, I must dare Slam the base with a hammer without warning; Yet you retaliate by cutting my neat thumb, Then hitting me right on the spot, the sore ankle. I pin you with a glue gun; now we’re through, Drown in the hazardous bin, rascal stapler! The Ordinary Contest: Poetess Darkly

    Please stop Nette, my tummy muscles are hurting! The next to last line in the last verse absolutely floored me... I got even recently, slammed that little SOB on the floor and of course, there was no replacement so I had to run down to Office Depot and then (see above) - Tim
