A little bit of this and a little
bit of that, all mixed together in a
poetry hat, pull out nubile wordles
bash them all around, organise the way
they look, smell and sound. Stir ‘em into shape,
shake ‘em through and through, let them have their say,
they’ll tell you what to do ~ and when the stew
is finished, finalised and done then make
some bread to go with it, knead just for fun.
Bread has connotations, solid, formed it
rises, if the yeast is left out there are
no surprises. Method is important
from limerick to sonnet, free verse gives
to poetry yeast to place upon it.
