the paragraph was new
to the neighborhood
whose hundreds of corners
blasted hourly hundreds
of incredible stories,

around four hundred
of one and two of the other;
anyway, there were days
as the start as the caps
arose from the fields

who were rolling green blades
for villager bowls
and even old grumps drunk
in bowler garb staggering from pub
to church with layovers

in hell, their dinner jackets
really smoking for they picked up
the burning burrs and burning burrs
bring singe same as embers
yet aglow; anyway, the lights

were coloring the tents behind
the punctured basement
wall, and had no idea
the new stars had already brought
the red-ribbon presents

About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
