but aren't they all random?



A Pocketful of Poesy was a Poem-a-Day(-on-Average) Blog* up until the great derail of 2013. The impossibly-high standard of quality proved impractical to keep up, without a book deal. But don't take my word for it: click RANDOM and judge for yourself! And feel free to offer your critique.
*based on poem rate for calendar years 2009-2012. Also, kidding about the book deal.

any favors

I was consumed by me, for
which I only could
blame you, my dear.

you asked me to
you asked me to
remember when you asked me to?
I do

it's clear
that we can't be
as true to us
as I am to
the very thought
of leaving you
can shiver me
I'm trembling
right through, and
through and through -
okay
wait, one more tremor -
there

that's it
I'm through
oh wait

I think it's back
it's coming back
you said
come back

you asked me to
you asked me to
remember when you asked me to?
I do
you did
you asked me to
remember when you asked me to?
I do

you fit
in fits and starts
into my life
you hit so hard
it changed the shape
from cratered out
to gathered in
so desperately

you asked me to
you asked me to
remember when you asked me to?
I do
you did
you asked me to
remember when you asked me to?
