pocket poems

go ahead, be a pest.
crack open your pocket, your heart, your chest.
ramble on in perfect rhyme,
or hiccup in perfect iambic time.
they might wince or squint as you show ’em,
but let’s festoon the world with poems.

PAD, day 27. Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day!

    still find their way
    in and out
    of our pockets
    especially when
    we paint the pictures
    our souls and spirits take
    with curtsy rhyme
    bowing meter

    we spit when the coffee kicks in …
