The Dark Age of Literature

 
Enough!    
 
Dispense with your
feudal attempts; this poetry  
is not up to snuff  
   
Get it through your head  
---I am a dragon!    

Not in the business  
of blowing smoke up your ass;  
   
here to light a fire    
under it instead

Sacrilegious Psycho'me'try of Sacred Cow Pi Geometry leads to Bovined Encephalopathic Spongiformations

 
Black Magic  

How tragic  
 
Fever, hemorrhagic  
burns across your brow  
 
Gored, your Sacred Cow  
 
Learned a hard earned lesson  
now didn't you?  
 
Sickness  
of a nameless demon  
having traveled through  
Ouija board from Nether Region  
infecting your gourd  
  
Oh, Lord!

Mobility

Unplug my father's new scooter
Dust from tiny tires
I follow distant
Smiles of good times past
Memories of learning to ride a bike
 I look down at the legless frog
Thoughts of joy and sorrow
I won't tell him

thurst

your supine body  
baring mine    
quivering lips    
in my ears    
our thoughts are    
mutual for freedom    

an ineffable thirst    
drying my breath      
   
and,    
I fed my thirst...    
   
a sonorous cry  
felt familiar...    
   
the ethereal feeling    
dampening my throat      
satisfying me

Agree with Uma's words & loved her non-entries Enjoyed reading each entry & many thanks to those who took the time. There is such a wealth of talented writers on this site. In this Covid age all art seems, somehow, more important. Diolch & stay safe. Rob

Thank you so so much, this was such a great competition, thank you Uma and Rob for setting the scope and field for what was creatively something very rich to explore. I first balked at the 40 word limit, but it was such a useful and perfect way to remain efficient and explore exactly what one wanted to say. no superfluity - be dark directly.

A big bravo to Wallyroo and Insiderew, am honored to be mentioned with your writes. and thanks and bravo to all the excellent entries.

Also thanks Uma for the kind words and taking time to examine and consider each write. And I am 100% with Rob, that in these times creativity and Art maybe the most powerful resource we have.

chuffed to bits...big love to all.
