POEM STARTER 1009
If you insist
on pretending to be someone else,
then you’ll never know
who you really are.
AWARD WINNING POET
Her poetry: technical mathematical formula perfection
without a trace of sentimentality in dull metaphors
obscurely connected to emotions
resonating as if written by extinct languages
known only as Yonkalla or Rumsen.
When the eye of the needle
I can’t make the words
POEM STARTER 90210
Like depressed delphiniums in vivid blue
who never succumb to their own toxicity
the young Hollywood starlets
at an industry cocktail party,
dream of a Beverly Hills Housewife
