To a Friend Closet Cleaning, Springing, Soaring: Revolutionary Blogging Improv Poem

October 11, 2010

The closets we hold/
closed/
with our memories/
and regrets/
and pain/
and anger/
and ‘what if’s’/
and “I should have’s”/

choke us,/
like an albatross/
around our neck,/
like a millstone tied,/
weighing us down,/
like a bad meal/
returning again/
and again/
and again;/
sour burning/
into our throat./

And when we dare/
swallow deeply,/
gulp,/
and open/
the closet,/
face our fears,/
disgard the distrust,/
harness our hurts,/
tame our trash,/
and purge our past,/
it’s not just spring/
cleaning./
It’s our spring/
board./
We jump./
We leap./
We soar.

The Shoe in Her Closet: Revolutionary IMprov Blog Poetry

September 18, 2010

The shoe that sits in your closet/
but is never worn/
is not a shoe at all/
but an ornament/
ment/
to adorn/
a dark, hidden space/
that only you/
know about.

I’m in her closet

In my pantry,/

r gifts:/
Some yummy,/
some funny,/

But gifts,/
like love,/

when shoved.
