NaPoWriMo 2.23: Mary, Mary

I’ve been at a poetry course tonight (with the marvellous Rommi Smith) and we’ve been talking about syllables. So we wrote a cinquain, a form which goes 2/4/6/8/2 syllables in each line, 22 in total… 29 more words


Words and Images



Our conversation paused,

whilst we both adjusted our stance.

State Tests- poetry month cinquain

State tests
Really not fun
Too much pressure for kids
Will these tests ever disappear?
Doubt it :(

Verso 26

The Proverbs of Earl, 1:2

Get back
to the truck; see
if there’s a napkin and
some tape behind the seat. That ought
to work.


Life is like the Eiffel Tower
postcard beautiful from a distance
until you get up close and realize
it’s just steel covered in graffiti
Everyone wants to leave their mark.
