here's a toast:
place two slices
in the toaster slots
and depress the handle;
wait merely a few minutes
and they will pop up nice and brown
ready for your special jam session

overtures negate rap

On

volume

exceeds wrong

rhythm with a

tantalizing drum beat

underscored by gunfire

resonating in the air,

echoing through the area.

Silence now follows you into sleep.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

Something Pyramidal

mixture for
erecting a
tall mausoleum
housing Nefertiti
inside when she is buried
near Akhenaton’s area,
giving both a tomb which can conceal

and your footsteps will be light
as you dance in your neighborhood
demonstrating a heart that's on fire

hot footin’

fire
walkers
have to dance
over the coals
so their feet don’t burn
to prove their bravery
and they build up calluses
which must be debrided and washed;
I’d guess they will use some lava soap.

de-bridement;
best try divorce
unless annulment's
still your valid option;
of course one has to wonder
how you got yourself into this

excuses

to keep possessions
out of the settlement;

when getting half of everything
and the lawyers leave you with even less

life after she leaves

less

fear and peace
enmeshed to cull
arrangements you make
for life’s panacea;
turning shopping on TV
each night you wished to watch the game

Taken from a pictorial challenge


could this satisfy me

curves
on a
unclad fruit
lured me and I
devoured the sweetness;
taking it for myself,
hoping if I left any
it would not be merely a dream
summoned by my hunger for one bite.

bicuspid’s elongated

some girl’s neck too swig,
proving this area
is dear to Dracula’s heart;
depending upon the girl’s age,
she will spend centuries in his bed.

giving new life’s nuclei
years to bring lasting pleasure
in its growth so seeds you plant will
sustain that which is left when you’re dead

DEAD END IS DEPRESSIN'

a short trip
down deep holes for
entrance into strange
notions where my loud pleas
don't get an answer, or dreams
issue forth with pictures where I
sense nothing of value to hope in

idea’s form needs work

in
due time
each new phrase
aids what you build,
shaping pyramids
from a thought which is new
or concepts which will echo
repeatedly with your reader
making them realize they must think

titillate keeping on

think
it’s time
to elevate
ignored forms and help
little Nonets that I
love to make harder when
acrostics added might bring
the reader to think about so
everyone writing wants to join in

red tinted ring

darting about over
wings that were reaching into
an ominous sky prompting you
simply to to stand in fear without words

First, I'll answer Daniel's post with one of mine and then will answer Lori's. Whoopee!!! She's back!



wonderful sentences

words
occlude
nuance when
disguised import
escapes reader’s sense
requiring conclusion,
false assumptions or cryptic
unknown meanings which can require
long and intricate explanations



and now - Lori's


rise up one test to end

right
is nine
syllables
ending nonet,
utilizing eight
precludes shortened words so
obliterate and expunge
niggling little contraction;
error line will then be corrected
