Соус, or: Соул

Pronunciation mess
Word sauce
      Соус ➜ soh-oos
My own ingredients ferment
Betray identities
Sharpen distinctions
Burn my tongue 
      Соул ➜ soh-ool

I'm bottled, jarred
Spilled out onto the
Shattered shards of broken empires
      Soh-ool music swallows
      Mispronunciations mine
      Add flavor
            Thicken the soh-oos with
      Some plot

d’Verse poetics: What’s bubbling?

At d’Verse, writers were encouraged to write poems that use any of the definitions, examples, images, or applications of fermentation that inspire them.

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!
