More Useful


“The poet

must be

more useful

than any

other member

of his tribe.”


Comte de Lautréamont

Elfje: (Cinquain)


his kin
your own folk
our band with pride


Tanka: 5,7,5 7,7 syllables


scent was in the air
met a pie man goin’ where
to the county fair

one a penny hot crossed bun
a pun can be so much fun




it was a full moon, what a scare
heard noises but nothing was there
men in wolves clothing were howling
the old wives faces were scowling

the shining brought out the lunatic
tricks to be played on the local dipstick
lore propagated by the areas monsters
what evils lurk in the deep ponds waters

souls revisiting on all hallows eve
reminders for those left to greave
could the cow jump over the moon
lovers taking the time to spoon

the moon is such a wonderful topic
except for those who are totally myopic
