Metaphorically Speaking

Poetic Menagerie
By GC

Beasties

Wildlife verse
cavorts
to the poet’s
command

Mirth

Laughter,
the monkey strophe,
carries on
delightfully

Fear

Shark words
thrash, bite, tear
at a reader’s
emotions

Anger

Anger, an alligator,
snaps and snarls,
blindly lashs out
rhyme

Sloth

Sloth, the enjambment snake,
lazes in the sun
coiled, waiting to capture
the perfect break word

Jungle

Verse entangled --
words, lines, strophes
like newborn lion kits --
struggles to open eyes and steady legs
