Cyrano Needs To See: Revolutionary Email Sonnet

April 8, 2010

As you know,/
Cyrano/
did much of his best work/
orally,/
and verbally,/
under the balcony./
Not just a written poet, he!/
His muse was finest,/
and at its divinest,/
when he could see,/
Roxanne./
(“But”, you’ll say, “you can’t see/
me!”)
In my mind I can.

Cyrano heard/
dropped by RoxAnn/
could crush a man,/
he said,/
but only if she remember-ed/
those/
hopes/
she dropped lightly,/
4 naught,/
which he mightly/
caught.

“I Don’t Get It, Poetry”: an IMbic Romantic Sonnet

January 29, 2009

I don’t get it, Poetry.

Pentameters iambic;

Rhythms Pedantic;

Imagery.

 

Words that

Try to rhyme

Sometimes;

But frequently don’t.

 

Stresses and Meters

That fit in a beat,

But they only succeed

In confusing the reader.

 

I don’t get it, Poetry.

But I get the romance you write to me.
