To kill a writer
I draw daydreams devoid of grammar.
Jumble memories with synonyms.
Cook laughter with adjectives.
Flirt with rhymings.
Drool over oxymorons.

My masterpiece is not just another
crushed paper.
Or left stale at the back of a 
hotel bill.
Or a long text message
killed...

All that I do need, (5)
Are my poems in front of me;  (7)

Good blockers in front of them;
Away they will run.

Lyric a la Mode
I am a true contemporary
who knows how to acceptably 

write a poem.  First with a tangible
aroma of burnt toast, I will run on

my imaginary couplets like a stroke
victim of the modern prejudices.

Brevity’s
my cup of tea
in poetry—
usually.

I relish rhyme. 
Meter’s sublime.
To me, they’re prime—
most of the time.

On second thought, I’d rather have blank verse.
Express your thoughts sans rhyming patterns, please,
while making sure your meter is sustained.
Just iambic...

Who I am
I am an engineer.
But could use words to penetrate your testicles.

A little boy.
I use the poetic pen to paint colorful memories of tomorrow.

A simple guy.
I create a new version of me when poetry runs in...

COOKING POETRY
if poetry be the food i need,
then give me in excess.
let it fill my thoughts deep
and dark as the fathomless sea.
let it quench my undying thirst
like dinner with barbarian tards.
let it swim down my gut

I'm a cute poet
My name is Sammy Kyle
And I’m a cute poet
I use strange inner drive,
like a girl in a “cool” skirt.

Thou am less concerned about myself
But caved in the ability to express
poetry is the breath and final...

Passion cannot be subdued by staying at home for an interim stay

Figures of Speech
Birds of a feather
Here's mud in your eye
Change like the weather
What money can't buy
Right as rain
Picking a bone
I can't complain
Dumb as a stone
Chewing the rag
We're in the same boat
It's in the bag
Frog in your throat
When...

KINDER-WRITING
i.
I've learnt to play with words
Like a kid in kindergarten
Gathering thorny roses from the garden.
With words, now I play.

ii.
Despite the spikes
Pricking and tick-ly
Still, I pick words as toys
Making the alphabets my buddy.

iii.
I don't joke around...

FOR POSTERITY
I write my poems for posterity:
To be trapped and preserved
In the pages of moth-eaten books,
To be discussed at universities
Hundred years after my death,
To be selected in syllabus and taught in
Classrooms of schools in remote lands,
In...

Imagery
Writing a poem is just like painting 
Diverse images created with words.
A poet paints them while he's thinking, 
And colors them with the feelings stirred.

As the lines breathe forth and touch,
A poem may show vivid...
