Poem for April 4th


"Socronicity"

For Evan Hall

Earth’s Mesmer
this beautiful game
an eleven player
clockwork cyclone
sweeping us up
into orchestrated chaos
serendipity’s metronome
of syncopated kicks and cleats
keeping time
razor sharp
calculating minds
taking time
until the lightning
of opportunity strikes
stopping time
as the ball reaches
the net result
and voices unite
in a resounding
“Goal!”

Poem for April 2nd

A call for submissions

 

we are the April fools

who use pens

to stop time

and observe in a moment

the strands of cosmoverse

as they weave together

this wonderfully mad world

 

we are the April fools

who use keystrokes

to piece together dreams

and build with wordplay

the treasures within the mundane

as we chronicle

this wonderfully mad world

 

we are the April fools

who use this month

to stretch our own limits

and translate our heartbeats

the syllables of our existence

as words on the pages of

this wonderfully mad world
