Don’t Ever Not Dance: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Sonnet

April 2, 2011

I’ve been writing conTEXTing poetry for several years, but this is the first time I’ve been able to create a ConTEXTing Sonnet, forcing the sonnet’s abab / cdcd/ efef /gg rules into the 160 character limit of my cell phone’s text message/SMS limits

Don’t ever/
not dance,/
lest U never/
get that chance./

Try 2 hear/
the Universe say/
don’t fear/
2 give smiles away./

a chance/
2 gasp/
in romance./

U wait?/
2 late.

Why I Write: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

March 9, 2011

I write because
I can’t stop.
It feels like me
to birth word-thoughts

Live into the universe,
screaming like newborns
with energy, life
and emotion.

If I were to cease,
like a woman in mid-labor cries,
I would scream in agony,
convulse, and die.

Not wanting to be found dead,
I choose to dream and write instead.

What If 4 Once: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Iambic Poem

October 14, 2010

What if,/
4 once,/
relationships stayed?/
What if,
4 once,/
nobody strayed?/
What if,
4 once,/
the Universe obeyed/
our innermost desire/
2 hold passion’s fire/
4 once?

please welcome him in.

Dark Man, Center Of Her Universe: Romantic ConTEXTing Poetry

August 16, 2010

Written for a friend, to her husband who was away on a business trip:

Dark man, center of my universe:
We look at the stars the same,
the moon the same.

Tomorrow you and I will be together;
though apart, you carry my heart.
