A demon leaps up from the pages,
Long ages
Waiting for his invitation:
Your invocation.

Too late you slam shut both the covers;
He hovers
Giving you gold in a barter:
Your soul’s the martyr.

I rapidly speed walk as if I'm making an effort to arrive on time

XOXO till you pick me up from school, precious momma!

Short Slam poem by Charles Henderson| Details |

Why I Don’t Like Slam

Excuse me please, pardon me, thank you ma’am.
Hold the door, turn the cheek, that’s who I am.
Facetiousness, so sad,
By any name is bad.
Hateful pretense is why I’m against slam.

"Give Slam a Ham"

I know little of poet, Sam Slam,
But give him a slice of poet I am.
Of the prime directive,
I am over protective,
So slam your gums down, here comes your ham.

Satisfied, triggers unique visions

I detest bad drivers
They threaten me
They cut me off,
Don’t let me be

They slam on brakes
They pass me by
And make mistakes

Mow Song

Mow, mow, mow the lawn
From spring until fall
Merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is just a dust ball

Mow mow mow the road
gently as a lamb
Merrily hurriedly gobbledly
bet you're singing this slam

***Hope I made you smile with my nonsense??

Slams Destroyed Her Head

Slams Destroyed Her Head

She was slammed by slam poetry, boo hoo!
Some folks wondered about the hullabaloo.
When bombarded with dread,
Sad thoughts destroyed her head.
Now, she thinks she’s a blithering cuckoo!

Short Slam poem by Kiara Lowdog| Details |

Fall Out Boy!

I love Fall Out Boy
Their songs fill me with joy
Rocking like a punk
And, did I mention that the lead singer is a hunk

Songs like Dance, Dance
Brought their career to a great advance

Dance moves
And awesome groves
Makes Fall Out Boys jam
A grand slam!

Short Slam poem by James Peranteau| Details |

That heavy feeling

the heavy feeling of 
that screech !

And her slam ‘pon me,
as in;
her best friend too,
came suddenly

Their press was
to say the least;
as myself now
will attest

The conductor of that train
slammed on
brakes !

Short Slam poem by Patricia Lewis| Details |

I Think It Was Just The Wind

Seeing the rocking chair swing 
back and forth without 
someone in it 
Hearing the door slam and no 
one was in the house with me
Seeing the window slam shut 
and no one was in the room 
with me
Hearing the footsteps in the 
upstairs attic 
Or was it something else?

Short Slam poem by Amy Green| Details |

Dr Dr

Shut me up, slam the door in my face
Doctor, doctor-
Is it really so bad I wanna know about  
the human race?

The human condition, or maybe
even addiction- is it so wrong to ask
a question without a dollar sign?

I ain't bad, I ain't nuts-
Just a regular ol' girl who's curious.

A. Green

Short Slam poem by Vernette Hutcherson| Details |


Mama said wipe your feet
I just mopped the floor
Mama said don't yell so loud
And don't slam the door
Mama said feed the dog
Then go set the table
Mama said you must cook
For I just wasn't able
Mama said a lot of things
Heaven knows it's true
But one thing Mama never said was
I love you

Short Slam poem by Kim Merryman| Details |

John McEnroe

John McEnroe
Former tennis pro.
His bad boy behavior on the court,
Was due to his temper being short.

John McEnroe
Won seven Grand Slam titles, don't you know.
He was nicknamed "Superbrat" by the Brits,
Because of his outrageous snits.

Short Slam poem by Cecilia Patterson| Details |

In Thought Out of Thought

Once on line
And then off line
Once in thought
Then out of thought

Run far 
Far away
Slam the door
You seem afraid

I will not harm you
My words will be few
I will not question
Nor pursue you 

The door again now opens
The door again now closes
Again in thought
Again out of thought

Short Slam poem by Richard Lamoureux| Details |

Questionku 18

I slam the door
Leaving screams behind
Is this the end of us?

10 remaining spots for my Questionku  contest, sharpen those questioning minds. At this rate the contest may be closed within the week. Don't miss out on the one and only Questionku contest. This is your chance to make history my friends!

Ghosts Shadow Houses

Ghosts shadow houses working for a second glance staring at the corner of moonlight 
creeping fog fervent chasms christen calls lifting hearts from fluttered chests descend the 
stairs in panic a smoky season plumes doors slam voices with windows moan pallid 
reeking lace laments light forms behind you

Short Slam poem by John Joseph P.| Details |

House Call

My childhood hero was Doctor J
Ambassador to the NBA
he could sure play back in his heyday
flying high, just amazed all the different ways
a windmill slam dunk in-yer-face
driving finger-roll, unstoppable number six
race down court to receive an alley-oop for two
1983 76ers Rule! with their flamboyant skywalker

Short Slam poem by joe fisher| Details |


I wish for nothing,
I ignore the truth,
I hope for something,
and thats all I do.

Movement towards,
the f'ing door,
handle turns,
the f'ing sun,
the f'ing porch,
movement back,
two f'ing steps,
f'ing slam.

I wish for nothing,
I ignore the truth,
I hope for movement,
someone push me out the door.

Short Slam poem by DeVonta Reese| Details |

I Lost

A battle of life.
We're both trying to win.
We battled and faught.
Trying to seek revenge.
Revenge is sweet.
What goes around comes around.
Some days I feel you pick me up.
Othere days I feel you slam me down.
The end is coming.
The line we have to cross.
Yes I did it, I won!
But why do it feel like I lost.

Short Slam poem by cecil hickman| Details |

Slamming Politicians

They slam each other every day.
Tearing them apart in a sly way,
Truth I say, what a lie.
Political games cry.
Give them cement shoes, drop into bay.

Next election, vote for three blind mice,
They would fare better, than roll of dice.
Vote now for mystery.
Go down in history.
For they have no “tales-tails“, truths suffice.

Short Slam poem by Tim Ryerson| Details |

Nosy Neighbor Nuisance

She's "concerned" that my mess is immense
"I work late." Is my latest defense
Yes, my yard is a wreck
But IF you must peck
Your big NOSE might get stuck in my fence

So you KNOCKED my troublesome trooper?
Tell ya what you prim party-pooper
I will warn you once more
Poke your head through MY door?
I'll slam it right square on your snooper

Short Slam poem by Vincent Procopio| Details |


the shamegasket…
sealed to its shame

pounding pistons

don’t let go
won’t let go

polymer of repression
weakening, yielding…



can’t…help me…oh no

yes, that’s it

Blow! Blow! Blow!

oil-stained junkyard
slowly spinning

slanted yellow moon
mocks twisted hearts
