Poetry is more
than hitting Enter
after every other word
in a sentence.
playing with the upside-down rain,
dancing in the desert dunes,
singing in the tepid shower,
crying beneath the dry boughs,
screaming with the howling wind.
helped me find the x in an algebraic map,
reminded me how chalk and flour feel similar,
spent every last word I have to buy
1Three down, 2four across,
3four down, 4two across, 5five across.
