What’s Worthy Of Turning A Woman’s Head: Revolutionary IMprov Iambic Poetry

December 20, 2012

Oh, had I the knowledge, then,/
to, with simple rhyme,/
turn back merciless time,/
and make a woman feel sixteen again!/

But mere uttered poetry/
is not, alone, worthy/
of turning a woman’s head./
For ’tis words not said,/
remaining unspoken,/
which, not opened,
offer more than tokens/
of what men may feel/
but which they dare not chance,/
with clumsy utterance,/
to reveal.
