stay slippery

the wildest, wisest, walleye
can wiggle and jerk free from steely
perils untold episodes

before becoming less able
to tell a tall tale to trusting sassy
tykes on an evening beneath

a weeping willow’s beard that tickles
heaven because those old hooks,
so sorry, so foul, keep coming along

to bore narrow numbers as bait
is void of originality
exertion as it ever was

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.
