+ Fav Poet


I make this detection
upon introspection
of the woodblock inside me named soul
I'm sightless to beauty
on par with a cootie
or, moreover, an underground mole

I distinguish not burdock
from daisy nor hollyhock
a flower is a flower; just that
in all shades and shapes
their splendor escapes
their fragrance akin to rat

For music I've no ear
from hip-hop to austere
discordant cacophonies at best
hush is harmonic;
uncluttered by sonic
my woodblock is calm and at rest

Plaintive prose
gets right up my nose
and further if wordily verbose;
I don't mean to knock
but it's all poppycock
and frankly it's inclined to perturb us.

I have more to relate
let me share my pet hate
'tis birdsong, a misnomer of speech
birds scream and shriek
they squeal and they squeak
a maddening medley of screech

    Very cute way of voicing opinion, like someone from the old Empire dominion, Our big flying foxes squalk all night, and plaster the car, crimson /white, and its good paint too. Joe sent me a little verse, nothing bad n nuttin worse, n bombulator was slang for auto here in the 60s... great rhyming babe ... xo Don

    No, all thanks to you, especially since I let you know that was not my very first submission. I'll get round the techno side of things yet. I'll be entering your new contest as well and hope to not bungle it again. lol I'm sure you must have had a good time reading and judging. There were some crackers in that lot. Great one, PD.
