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.

wildness

The sky is wild.
It has not been tamed, not at all
not by all the lashes
our jets have striped across its back. Unmarked,
it arches over us and sends down
icy wet kisses
and backbreaking arcs of fire,
at whim, sending us fleeing
to our houses,
tamed.
