I found a crown…



...of gogyohka
in my pocket
better than finding
half-chewed gum

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




i awoke in the night 
thinking of words 
and a particular quatrain 
and somehow feeling
that it needed icing


the only wave
that I can catch
is the one 
that is nothing 
but my phenomenal self


i find a different face 
at every direction
while i sit 
at the center 
smearing into pink


be your own nothing
your own emptiness
find the comforting womb 
of void
where you were born


i walk the line 
between real effort
and over-wrought irreality
between profound honesty 
and whoring profundity






...puttin' the Po' in NaPoWriMo...

Empty Elephants…an acrostic gogyohka




All these empty elephants
Pretending their own absences,
Regard their blind inspectors
Intent on every piece,
Laughing whole-heartedly. 







I see your challenge, Ms. Mimsy, and 
raise you one acrostic...
