The Medium

.

“The medium

is

the message.”

.

Marshall McLuhan (1964)

Elfje: Cinquain

.

tall

real high

over the top

a long way up

big

.

Tanka:

.

what were his motives

very selfish, self centered

I, me, never we


it was always about him

without thinking of others

.

Poem:

.

there is this crazy lady from Daytona Beach
reality was never within her reach
relationships always involved a hostage
her definition of love was the word bondage

she is always right, never wrong
the choice in music is invariably her song
every emotion involves a twist or a turn
someone always ends up with the heartburn

accusing everyone of having her own bad habits
is very adept at preforming mental acrobatics
behind the smoke and mirrors she is a saboteur
the family knows but they chose to ignore her

she remains needy, selfish and self centered 
ego driven and emotionally demented
those who know keep her in their prayers
nothing will happen as long as she is unawares

God will intervene, we pray she listens
she knows the name of some very good physicians
for those she harmed, time will heal
do not let your memory of her warp the way you feel

Emotion Is

“Emotion

is the

poetry

of life.”

.
Marty Rubin

Elfje:

.

feel
no touch
from the gut
what you may think
sense

.

Senryu: 5,7,5 syllables people and their emotions as a subject

.

gentle emotion
no laugh, no cry, just happy
the best in between

.

Poem:

.

the struggle was in his mind
was he better off dead or alive
to being hopeless he was resigned
it took too much just to survive

drugs and alcohol were a quick fix
too soon the terrible addiction took over
the mind started to play more insidious tricks
peace was an eternal sleep under a bed of clover

he woke up frozen to the ground
could not remember when the binge began
he so wanted his life to turn around
directions were needed to give him a plan

he found hope among a group of drunks
they gave him a book that had a Doctors opinion
it had twelve steps to get him out of the dumps
to a Higher Power he became a loyal minion

four scores plus he continues to thrive
the Group Of Drunks is now his sponsor
a soul at peace, just glad to be alive
to his personal God he gives all honor
