3 Silly Poems

I write poems

I write poems
just to delete them
because I enjoy
watching the cursor
chew them up.
Blinking
hungry
cursor.


Barf

How is it
I'd heard of barf
but the Bishop of Barf
had eluded me all these years?


Ode to Courier New

Courier New, how do I love thee?
Let me count the widths:

One.

Getting to Know Varjak Paul

via Google

Varjak can smell cinnamon and dates.

Varjak can escape over the wall into the unknown.

Varjak is forced out into the city when the sinister Gentleman and his two menacing cats take over his home.

Varjak is an outcast.

Varjak isn't complicated at all, but Frankincense's legs are gonna drive me nuts.

Varjak isn't going to cut it in the long term.

Varjak loves you.

Fugitive Causes

“Poetry, even that of the loftiest, and, seemingly, that of the wildest odes, [has] a logic of its own, as severe as that of science; and more difficult, because more subtle, more complex, and dependent on more, and more fugitive causes.”

~Samuel Taylor Coleridge
