Vivid - ShortHe rubbed away the sleep from his eyes as he opened them while he lay on his single bed. Stretching his muscles and enjoying the way they cracked, he got up from it.
"Lana," he mouthed the name while yawning. "Lana, we need to talk!"
With his mind still prioritizing what to do first, he decided to get dressed for work and wait for Lana as he does that. She should be here soon, he thought. His feet walked him to the bathroom sink where he first had a good look at himself in the mirror hanging right above it. He noticed the broken wall tiles behind him as he scratched his hard but light beard in the reflection. He always forgot to fix those tiles, or at least that's what he told himself. Secretly he wanted nothing changed in the apartment because every part of it was linked with her memory.
Lana. He remembered her again. Where is she? What's keeping her from coming?
The knob of the tap squeaked as he turned it. Hot water rushed out and fell on his hands causing him to coil back.
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
