Blank verse in iambic pentameter
Laziness; can't blame it on craziness - that's much too sexy, and I've yet to cut even one ear off. This constant stare-off with my own reflection on poetry websites; impressions in fast succession, forming ideas, framing works, foraging for scraps of ambrosia and digging down for diggities. Oh ~ hot damn! Almost slipped on this wet versatile - who left the words on?
Let’s write poetry together!
When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.–Ben Harper (b. 1969)
Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

Enjoyed it!! Love the humor. Please wax on…
💞 Cindy 💞 – the problem is… sometimes I wax on too thickly!
Ah, yes. Losing the shine to build-up is a risk.
Definitely not a problem here! 🙂
Reads like slam poetry!

Most near missed this gem. How’d that happen?
