That Explodes In Poetry


“It is always what is

under pressure in us,

especially under

pressure of concealment-

-that explodes in poetry.



~ Adrienne Rich


Elfje:            (Cinquain)



out of sight

only God knows

in between the lines



Tanka:             5-7-5, 7-7


lies purposely told

protecting someone’s feelings

hiding liars guilt

no beneficial reason

the only good is the truth




the only good is the truth
stories told to amuse
stories told to bemuse
I found the fountain of youth

the only good is chocolate
flavors from soup to nuts
promises, no if ands or buts
temptations from a secret closet

the only good is winning
it does help if you are lucky
anything to avoid the yucky
honesty helps you prevent sinning

the only bad is dying
be a winner, tell the truth, eat chocolate
and enjoy this life



ME and the Boss
