Meter Monday: "Love Letter to Mr. Poetry"

Meter Monday: "Love Letter to Mr. Poetry"

by Marilyn Moy

 

Dear Mr. Poetry,                               a sunny day in the year no one cares about

You have a very classy last name

it tickles my nose

some days I never see you

because my brain is

preoccupied with Mrs. Academics and Mr. Social Entertainment

and who could forget Daydream 

who lets

my troubles 

                     slip,

                            fading

                                       into

                                             temporary

                                                              oblivion?

But anyways,

back to you.

Some days I get into the mood

And see and feel your blood in my veins

BTW I don’t mean this in a sexual way

it’s all figurative language anyway

You make me laugh

when I mold you

chiseling at your inner character

until I am fully satisfied

You,

Mr. Poetry,

are the personification of creativity flowing from your fingertips

the paragon of profuse imagination.

Stay golden.

                                                                         Sincerely Yours,

                                                                         Ms. Author
