Glove (an acrostic poem)

Given how worn the leather mitt was

Left little doubt to the owner’s love of the game

Only there was also a second one that was barely broken in

Viewing them together left John feeling such remorse

Eventually he put the second one on beefier breaking down and crying

Decide (an acrostic poem)

Determine which pill you are going to take

Engage a chaotic future of tremendous highs and lows by selecting the purple pill

Calm down and have a boring life by selecting the orange pill

It comes down to choice of lifestyle

Don’t ask for a do over, this is a one-time offer world-wide

Everything comes down to this moment.  What do you choose?

Robot Pause

Sorry, but I won’t have an acrostic poem for you tonight. I was pretty busy creating a new version of a cool robot hand made out of rubber bands for the actual “fingers”. I’ll get a video of it together so you can see it in the next couple of days as well as a n acrostic poem to go with it.

Let me know in the comments if something like this is interesting. Thanks!

Swarm (an acrostic poem)

So many annoyances buzzing all around.

Why are they picking on me?

All I want to do is swat at these bothersome gits

Releasing me to get on with my life

Maybe if I bought one of those electric zappers

Slip (an acrostic conversation)

 

So, you thought I would lapse in my attentiveness, and then you would give me the underdress.

Lilly, what are you blundering about this time?

It makes no difference, I found the small dock you parked your getaway dingy at!

Perhaps before you verbally stumble some more you should hand over the thesaurus.

Crease (an acrostic poem)

 

Cutting and tape would be cheating

Realize the Zen of proper folding

Elephants and cranes made of paper

As fingers show off their dexterity

Solemnly teasing out a third dimension from two

Evoking the surreal as its goal

My Favorite Superhero (an acrostic poem reprint)

One of my favorite acrostic poems I have written. It is especially poignant because of Mother’s Day.

Never Short On Words

Mortal though she may be

Obviously she has super powers

The ability to absorb pain and suffering with a single kiss

Hearing so acute that she doesn’t miss a whisper from a mile away

Eyesight so keen that she can actually see through and around solid objects

Remember that your mom is a superhero!
