Duck and Cover

                                           I place a hand grenade
                                              into a box of words
                                             and pull the pen out
                                 I hold a pad in front of my my face
                                   and call the resulting destruction
                                                      Poetry

    Enjoyed this, Caleb. Hmmm, what would my poems be like? I think a sand crab. You know how they hide and then all of a sudden pop out of nowhere, grab hold and yank hard, scuttle along... Preferred your analogy! Smiles from Cyndi
