word crunk

let’s get loose and funky,
let’s lose ourselves to this
furious sky. let’s turn and
kern, get drunk on phrase
and play with poems for
days and days until we
collapse in a hilarious high.
let’s dance ourselves sane,
feed our lungs moon’s lullaby.


Written for a fun new challenge over at dVerse, the Quadrille.

    Ah, I like the idea of dancing ourselves sane! I am going a bit ‘stir crazy’ with our below zero weather here, so I could use a bit of this movement, I think!

    My God, yes, a wonderful foray, terrific wordsmithing; & the voice is clarion, the metaphor intriguing; lovely leading to smiles, hip hip, right on–a poet’s ballad, nearly an anthem. I like the lines /let’s lose ourselves to this furious sky/.
