Alternate Poem

The PAD Challenge today was to write about an animal. I didn't post the animal poem I wrote for Poetic Asides because I'm not quite ready to do so, but here is a poem I just wrote to make up for the one I didn't post earlier. This needs a lot of work! But it is a beginning. The mayfly is going to be a big part of my second novel, and I've been needing to poetically explore the topic. So here is a first attempt:

--the beautiful other.
Who wouldn't
want to mate with them:
They have paired genitalia!
Their insides
are filled with air.
Some float to the ground
while mating.
Others keep flying.

About Me

My photo
Northwest Ohio, United States
"I was no better than dust, yet you cannot replace me. . . Take the soft dust in your hand--does it stir: does it sing? Has it lips and a heart? Does it open its eyes to the sun? Does it run, does it dream, does it burn with a secret, or tremble In terror of death? Or ache with tremendous decisions?. . ." --Conrad Aiken

Fave Painting:  The Three Ages of Man and Death

From the First Chapter

The Secret of Hurricanes : That article in the Waterville Scout said it was Shake- spearean, all that fatalism that guides the Kennedys' lives. The likelihood of untimely death. Recently, another one died in his prime, John-John in an airplane. Not long before that, Bobby's boy. While playing football at high speeds on snow skis. Those Kennedys take some crazy chances. I prefer my own easy ways. Which isn't to say my life hasn't been Shake-spearean. By the time I was sixteen, my life was like the darkened stage at the end of Hamlet or Macbeth. All littered with corpses and treachery.
