Thanks to all who participated in this last week’s poetry…thing! Hopefully it was mildly entertaining.
There were some fun contributions. If I have to pick a winner (which, according to myself, I do), it is this one, by Linda Colman:
A unicorn born to a mare
Sought solace in a punnett square:
“My horn though impressive
Is clearly recessive –
Not wrought for Celebrity’s glare.”
Nice use of catalectic amphibrachic paired with the acatalexis of the short lines! And an extra point for using an open en dash. (>^-‘)> I see you’re on Google+, so I’ll hit you up there for the prize.
In other news, I’ve finally finished a presentable draft of The Book’s ninth chapter. Before moving on to the next one, I think I’ll take a brief (…optimistically) intermission to work on a short story idea that’s been bouncing around in my head for a while, pestering me to get written.
