Yasmin Kahn

Yasmin Kahn

Grabbed my fishin’ pole 
And sat in my lazy chair
I dropped my hook into a bowl of alphabet soup 
And guess what I found there?
A rare kind of fish who weaves magical words
Never a cross word she’ll write; literacy is her sword

How does she does she do it?

A machine gun firing words in rapid succession
The grand marshal of a dictionary procession
Her words are like harmonica notes swirling on a soft current of air

Hours I could read her work

Reclining from my lazy chair

Written for Harry Horsman & Mandy Tam's Contest
*Curiosity Killed the Cat*

    Kindness is the key to writing poetry. I'm curious now to read some more of this dear poet you've come to adore. I thank you for your lovely comment. And glad you laughed, that's what I meant. Sadly, the part of Max is true. He did like beer floats and three days later they found him blue. Sorry, don't mean to be crass. The rhymes tend to go where they will. And I'm foolish enough to go along. Max was a dear friend of my dad's and our family. God rest his soul.
