i'm a poet, and i didn't even know it

poetic license

my Poem defies convention.
i refuse to trap it in
iambic pentameter,
Rigid Rhyme Scheme--
ABAB, CDCD
et cetera, et cetera.

my Poem uses kooky comparisons,
juxtapositions quite out of the ordinary.
i speak of slanderous sassafras,
blasphemous boysenberries,
and canteloupes oh-so-cantankerous!

my Poem includes bunches of doodads--
(parentheses here,) an ellipsis there…
a line change where it doesn’t make
sense at all.

my Poem includes stanzas of all different lengths
--6 lines, 5 lines, 8 lines--
and i sprinkle punctuation like cheese on homemade pizza.

why?

because i am a rebel, and
my Poem defies convention.

I love it. No joke.
Very quirky and unique.

I will be re-visiting.
Awesome blog.

I miss writing letters.
What was the purpose of learning how to write in cursive if we hardly ever use it, aside from signing our paychecks.

(I'm linking you, okay?)

Thanks for the comments & the link!
I bought those pendants from Michaels for actually pretty cheap. They have some awesome finds. My favorite place is a place in Illinois that is a Native American jewelry shop. Hand painted, well crafted beauties. I love it!

I know we have one near, but I've never gone inside one.

You have just broke that barrier.
Getting me to travel to new places, you sly devil, you.

I love this. Absolutely. =) This is freakin' good. I really think it's publish-worthy! I haven't read poetry in ages and it's such a good reminder for me to get back to some...

Whatever it is, just wanted to say that I really like it =)

This was quite the lovable poem! I wish I was that fluid with words.
I finally completed your tag by the way!
