55/FormForAll: A pair of shorts on a warm day
URU-KNO (from an out of state license plate)
three words on the wall of the train
are passed everyday like a stain
unnoticed or detested
& seldom digested
by those carrying, like balloons, clouds of rain
At dVerse Poets today, we are playing with limericks for FormForAll with none other than Mad Kane. It really is a fascinating article that really clearly lays out how to write them, unless of course you are me and have an allergic reaction to form. But I try. Do stop in any time after 3 pm EST.
And for the best looking sleeveless host on the back of the bike that speaks only in 55 words, here is my 55 word story for g-man.
Each our own Shop of Antiquities
Wind up toys have gone the way of the dinosaur
or pocket watches---
too many springs sprung
from being wound too tight,
now it's all battery powered, which
when they die can just be replaced
Our metaphors stack up---
we, trading one for another
the older ones laugh from the shelves
like dusty-eyed porcelain dolls.
