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.

the second thickest ice

Ready?
Set?

With a power that belies our deceptive grace,
we vault via breathtaking triple-lutz
into first place - on points,
and for style,
just prior

to a technical disqualification for skating naked.

Well, for goodness and gracious sakes! We have always
been in training, making
for the finals
straining
for some impersonal best world record - maybe,
I say maybe,
we should shoot for something more. Forget
the Games, the record, let's break it

I will steal gold
if you distract China,
we can totally make it.

We have no drugs.
Performance-enhancing or otherwise - the others
can't compete against us, but

how 'bout we let them catch up,
if they will agree to split the score?

Hey what is this stuff?
