Note: This poem is not about any candidate or political party, just a comment about the constant animus of the political process.

Audacity of hope, nope, cope, dope

slipperyslope, microscope

grope, Europe, mope

interlope, Pope, fallop

trope, tightrope, misanthrope

Morning star crests

Cardinal chalks wind

Impulsive stem defies frost

Some obscure divinity ignites

& in God’s image

I create

Thanks for your patience while I’ve tinkered with our Poetweetry site.

Hope you like the redesign. We may have to tighten up a few things as we go — you know how these webby things can get funky at times.

Please enjoy future poems, artwork and other posts.

Also, I’d love any feedback you might have about the redesign or Poetweetry in general.  Please feel free to comment after the post — or send me a private note via the “Contact” page above.

I will start out with reprint of one of my first posts that attempts to explain what Poetweetry is and is not.

Again, thank you for reading. Hope you enjoy. Glad we connect via the cyberwaves!



For Maysoon Zayid:

Sister of the great divide

Let’s cross the Jordan

Efface Juden-Jihadist tattoos

Mend mortar in2 mirth

so children swing 

high above history.

Fear death

avoid life.

Save money

all days gray.

Europe, Hawaii too distant

protect health.

Still Time exacts its loan

& regrets decay

No haiku, no rhyme

sonnets not

free blank verse au fait

scan characters slight meter

creativity kindled

by the simplest flame
