Poetry

Strolling Through a Friday Mind

Standing over six feet three
and one-hundred 95 pounds
I’m all elbows
in the shower
Hard to know what
I’ll knock down
Bent wings jutting
out like a raptor
riding a thermal
sans elegance
and grace
But I can
place the beans
on the top shelf
and peer over most
everyone else
at the mall
so a banged up shower
is a small
price to pay
And what is it with
the long introductions
to poetry books anyway?
I came
to read
the poetry not
prognosticating
about what it means
That’s for me
to glean
The literary equivalent
to banging my elbows
before I get clean

  1. I did a double take at the lines about the poetry book introductions lol but overall I liked this! I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree because I happen to enjoy the introductions to poetry books. I like learning what the poet was thinking as they were compiling the book and the inspiration behind the poems they chose to include.

    P.S. If we were to stand next to each other, I think we’d be a funny sight, because I’m under 5 feet lol
