If a giraffe
with a sore throat
is worst
than a centipede
with a sore feet 

What is worst

spider ?...

centipede crawling --
it's many legs on the move --
still can't outrun me.

lone wolf howling is
a reminder to treasure
the friendships i have.

fireflies:  beacons
of the night that help to guide
the lost soul towards home....

Premium Member Centipede Dismay -TROCHEE
Centipede so tiny crawls
trekking on a fence
hundred legs, he never falls
I watch in suspense…

My two feet are bad, you see,
pain comes when I walk.
Should I be a centipede,
you would hear me squawk!

*Entry for Andrea’s 7/5 Trochee contest

Too Much
Basically, this is a number
Adding too much to the
Zillions or gazillions of ... wait ... what exactly
Is it we're adding here? ... might be
Like the national debt or a
Little centipede counting ... hmm, or
Interest payments never to be made
On a war that will
Never end or are we just
Seeking sanctuary in a bazillion words?...

Premium Member DON'T BUG ME
Tom went to the ugly bug ball Strange insects invaded the hall Folks dressed up as fleas, Cockroaches and bees The smile on his face said it all Tom hoped for a little romance Asked a cute centipede to dance She whacked him on the nose When he trod on her toes He went home in an ambulance! 7th April 2017

First Spring
little hands clap
at first sighting
of a butterfly

little face smiles
at first sighting
of a sunflower

little fingers wriggle
at first sighting
of a centipede

little arms flap
at first sighting
of an eagle

little brow wrinkles
at first sighting
of a squirrel

little cheeks blush
at first sighting
of cherry blossoms

A bulging extremity,

a feminist integrity,

a swaggering centipede,

the cops arresting me,

my dick the right size,

the bang coming out of your eye's,

the sensitivity upon demise,

the dew and dripping from the sky's,

the eagerness of eloping,

the magnitude of doping,

the honesty of groping,

scattering scorpions glowing and scoping....

Just moving about on rows of countless legs
seems a most complex concern 
of the millipede.

I wonder how its motor nerves synchronize
milli-leg motion so not a limb 
could impede

the smooth movement of the rest of its legs
to avoid entanglements or a 
weird stampede,

a blunder the millipede should guard against
gossipers-creepers like his 
cousin centipede!...

Walk With a Centipede
Took my centipede on a walk
We were only going around the block
And before long I knew
I circled the block once, he twenty-two

That centipede stepped on my toe
Hurt so bad I had to slow
Stepped on it not just once but again and again
Not ten times but ten times ten

After he trampled my big toe
Couldn't take another step don't you know
This is all he had to say
"If you cant keep up, get out of the way"

Writing on my sleeves,
I visualize an invisible coupling
of grassroots with starless sky,
when I walk on the wailing earth.

Hails big as sparrow eggs
smash the bougainvillea blossoms.
The wrestling clouds
begin a storm.

Witchcraft of the moon begins.
The pubic curve of a rock
holds a centipede
wriggling, gnawing.

A spider climbs the weatherbeaten
and indulges in navel-gazing.

3 Step Poetry

It springs upon you.
Gleaming clawed metaphor
struggle to unhinge.

Many-legged adjectives 
commence to crawl over the page
similar to a robotic centipede
but bigger, shinier, brasher.

Then the seductive purr,
the mannered modes, the manicured forms,
the unmistakable reek of poetry.

The first step they say is recognition,
the second step is to find it a home.
The third step is to clean up
after it craps itself.
