He said, or: She said

A dark limerick

When they were tykes, their folks thought it ironic:
Bobby would burble, whereas Babs was laconic;
But mom and dad became panicked
When Bobby's shrink called him manic,
And Babs' isolophilia turned extreme and chronic.

d’Verse poetics: Thereโ€™s a word for that

At d’Verse, poets were encouraged to select three or more words from the list on this webpage and include them in a poem of any style.

The three words I selected were: 1) burble, 2) laconic, 3) isolophilia.


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!
