A few new: Snippets 376, 377, 378, 379

I’m not sure how much time I will have for poetry work this week so I thought I’d get these little guys lined up for today. I like to keep a trickle of current work coming out each week, and who knows, maybe I’ll have more later if time permits.

I worked on these snippets over the last week or so. I sorted through my cut-out print phrases and words while sitting on the sofa watching TV and let them form themselves, almost.

It was not
a waste of memory
But the forgotten knitted together.

ambitious marrying’
purposeful glaring
lukewarm sleeping
And cautious plotting

Tell me what’s changed
tell me who needed the money
tell me who was willing to smirk.

There was no sense in
the eccentric outline of this
angular afternoon

  1. These are all terrific. The final one makes me think of that sense of a day getting away from you, that the shape of the day you intended has morphed into something you can no longer deal with.

    • Thank you. Yes, I think days have shapes and angular ones have challenges, like driving in a dense neighborhood with lots of streets. The way you describe it is perfect, something pulled on the grid and moved it out of shape. Badly.
