Bam!

..

And just like that,
the door slams.

Right on cue,
a window opens,
but it’s
all shim(mer)
sham(bled)
and flim(sy)
flam(e).

..

..

Quickly prompted.

    You are one of my favorite poets; the way you play with words is inspiring.

    “Mer-bled sigh.” That is awesome! And perfectly describes your poems. Pretty close to “marbled” too.

  3. I read this first as “Barn” – the barn door shutting. Anyway, the emotion in this – expectation because the door slams – then something that carries an expectation of reward – the window.. but then poof, those expectations are quickly shot down. Love the double poem there.
