Something Big & Something small come together Day 9.4.2018

Today our example poet mussed with language and sound. But we also had to go with big/small and bring them together. Wasn’t sure how far this poem was going to go but it made its own decisions. I truly thought I was going to flag out today but poetry just wouldn’t let me. The title also chose itself. The one choice I made was to use the word beer as acknowledgement of our example poet.


not as bee sting

snakes fling tongues long

longing to what

and what

cross-stitch under the mouse

sand etching glass

beer deer fear full

sting tingling if you there

the always I can’t repeat

and can yes not remember

bees so small and so precious

snakes so massively annoying

but so am bees be if they sting

which was enough is enough
