Bite Me

Here stands your serendipitous poet

Resplendent in rags of riddle

Fishing for a song

Playing out her succulent metaphor

On a gossamer line hidden

Within distorted reflection

Shimmering in potent depths

Where hungry eyes find awaiting

At the end, the hook of a comma

Sharp as well-honed wit

Baited with a pretty turn of phrase

And despite yourself, to spite yourself

You bite

Down

Hard

On that alluring flavor

Who’s writhing scrawl

Parodies life

With artistic precision

Only to be snared with barbed euphoria

From the sharp punctuation

Of a sleight pause,
