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.

run_run

I am on my way to Whelm, and hope to arrive soon as

I have been going Over it most of my life

 

It seems I Under

Estimated Standing along the way

And found myself In

Capable hands that took me–

 

A

Stray–

 

To its bosom,

And that seemed enough

Given I was so often A

Lone

The Pen State of 409

mr-_clean

Mr. Clean

had a thing

for little 409—

a scrubbing bubble,

made for trouble,

scented lemon-lime.

 

A Brawny guy

–and just as fly

as paper he promoted

he spiked

her span,

lined her cans,

and on him–number doted.

 

And all was well,

until she fell,

into kitchen basin…

jammin’ drain

(but cleaning stains)

her heartbeat doubled…racin’..

 

Would hero–hers,

be Janitor

drummin’ up some business?

or Mr. Bowl

now, oh so old,

to salvage

cleaning citrus?

 

Neither, nor,

it turned out

—4

–09 had a handle,

on more than grime,

and double-time,

she leveraged self–

from channel.

409

 
 
 

daily prompt: clean

Text Box

box
You’re so square

you think

inside the box

(Big Brother soo approves)
 
 
 

–hell you carry it with you

that manmade shape

that shapes you

into edges and corners

hard to see around,

but is that natural?

is man?

(kind of)

it’s a banner epoch to be a mugger,

is all I’m saying

. . .

it’s better to be uneven

(I’ll level with you)

to be irregular…

(f*ck regulations)

Be a flying elephant

(Stupid!)

now those are some interesting

ears.

‘Mark, Get Set…Scratch!

Sun_and_yellow_2

Shoeshine

is so fine–

it polishes kicks,

the uppers,

the outers,

Not sole that takes licks

Sun_and_yellow_2

And outshine

is unkind–

it lessens the rest,

a bid for

attention,

to show you’re the best

Sun_and_yellow_2

While moonshine

is when whine

just won’t do the trick–

a toast-

burning host,

that soon becomes sick

Sun_and_yellow_2

It’s sunshine

that’s sublime

–it shines every eye

in life-giving

warmth

from starshine in sky.
