Free verse to Clover

May 21, 2012

Lynn Daue has asked for a new book spine poem. This time I raided C’s bookshelves. Give it a try…it’s addictive.

It reads:

 

Chloe,

Shopgirl!

What looks like crazy on an ordinary day

Taking time off, into thin air

Power over stress, sex, drugs and cocoa puffs

How to become ridiculously well-read in one evening

I was told there’s be cake, ham on rye

Now you know more

Seriously…I’m kidding

Now you know almost everything.

Yawn!

these are days that must happen
Down by the riverside

    Love this line: “Power over stress, sex, drugs and cocoa puffs”

      Thank you Shawna. It’s so unexpected sometimes, isn’t it. I was thinking of my 20yr old, her culture, her university books, her CMNS education…came together nicely.
