Alphabet Nonsense

by Michele Schottelkorb

ancient bowies carve delicate etchings
from ghastly horrid images
jesters know love means nothing
quirky ravens sing tunes
under vivacious wenches x-raying your Zen
September 2003


Author's Note: after reading a similiar poem from Max Bouillet's library, i was inspired to try my own hand at this interesting form of poetry...

Interesting. Love it when those vivacious wenches x-ray my Zen.

Kudos to you... These are really hard to do and I am impressed with anyone who tries them --let alone someone who does it as masterfully as you. Great work!

LOL! You made it through the alphabet from 'A' through 'Z'any! Most clever!

They are a great form and can be a lot of fun to write and still make sense with. You've done an excellent job on all accounts.

and yet this alphabet makes much sense, as if poetry ever needed to.
