Poem and Poet

By Judith R. Merz, NJ © jrmerz@aol.com

 

I love me a poem

That slithers and hops, clangs and murmurs onomatopoetically across a page…

That sprinkles similes like precious toppings on a cake...

That paints images with the crisp snap of a freshly laundered phrase …

That is both lover and torturer armed with finely crafted metaphors.

 

I love me a poet

Who embraces conventions unconventionally…

Who kneads sounds and syllables with bare pen and mind…

Who tantalizes, tickles, and troubles me beyond the words…

Who leaves me breathless, sated, but longing for more.
