jamb and eggs


.

it’s over
-easy does it, hard
boil it down to its most fragile
shell.

you’ll scram
-ble(ed) me
into a congealed
orange frown,

sunny side
up-side
………..down.

 

.
A second poem offering for my own Enjambment prompt over at dVerse. And Oh.My.Goodness. have my poet friends ever ROCKED the prompt. Head over to read some incredible poems, and perhaps to play around with one or two of your own.

    Hmmm, again, time to leave that lover, or a beginning of a wonderful meal after dropping old habits. Can’t tell. 🙂

    Love love how you use scram – ble(ed) me into a congealed orange frown ~

    Too bad for the ending – sunny up-side-down ~

    Add this to the 50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR LOVER anthem; what fun, jambed metaphors sticking to porcelain plates.

  8. This is just splendid… I have to say it’s one way to go from sunny-side-up to scram/bled.
    I think writing with enjambment that works especially well for break-up poetry.

    You never know what a broken woman might do.
