Another blogger is having a little poetry slam. As best I can tell slam poetry tends towards angular repetitions. Here’s a wee contribution:
Negative space around that palo verde is gracefully serene
Someone should paint the shapes it makes
Someone should paint the light
Falling golden on our schoolyard eucalyptus
Should draw the spiky sunburns of this agave
Should sketch pigeons distributed unevenly on lightposts
Triangular toward a vanishing point
Should draw the lines of a ruffled shoe
But art is supposed to be fun
Supposed to be about expressing myself
Can you express more than yourself only?
Yourself looking at the Eucalyptus, Palo Verde, Agave?
Looking at the light posts, shoe, pigeons?
Express what you see when you see these things?
