New? Close!

–lost the

lever from my clever,

lately missing

latch to pull,

–tossed

ideally

from my dealie

and I no longer cull,

any

insight

–and sh*t!

out write

now my sentences are dull…

trying

boldness,

for this oldness,

til’ half

empty

is half-full.

Out of Style

Karen Robiscoe dba CHARRONs CHATTER

a barker at market

marketing parkas

told me to park it

beneath his marquee…

Remarking my burqa

was yesterday’s jerkin

and hurtin’ for certain

the way I’m perceived…

Shaking out tunic

in shaking down movement

he barked that most sheiks

are taken with frayed

–fringes and edges

as long as alleged

unraveling hems

are finest of suede…

Then trading my jacket

in bartering racket

before I could counter

my coat was replaced,

by fast talking honcho

hawking pseudo-suede ponchos

to passing by pawns

showing poor fashion taste.

prompt: label

ya ThinK?

I am zippin’ it.

Letting myself

off the hook, I

won’t push buttons

any longer.

‘Keeping tabs

nevertheless,

and pinnin’ Velcro

I find life

a snap,

lately

–after a fasten,

anyway.

prompt: abstract

W.O.O.

penning gold

writing is a craft.

a talent.

a discipline—

requiring more than a keyboard,

and a working knowledge of

language

to master.

 
 

A story that must be told,

it jeopardizes

the tale and the teller–

righting sometimes

–isn’t.

For the truly dedicated, however

it’s paradoxically

never

wrong.
