Meaningless Meaning

I’m really at a loss. A title…I need a title.This poem, for better or worse, slipped from my thoughts as an ice cube might slip from one’s hand. Such is poetry, heavy with meaningless meaning.

This poem, for better or worse, slipped from my thoughts as an ice cube might slip from one’s hand. Such is poetry – strange indeed, heavy with meaningless meaning.

This morning,
I’ll write a short poem
about peanut shells

lost in a man’s beard
or rose petals twirling
as confetti on an April wind.

But, if you prefer dinosaurs
I’ll detail blood’s various shades
and the asymmetrical growth of fangs.

I might note an ogre’s stench
or compare a gnome’s
stealthy scamper

with a chipmunk’s quick feet.
All I need is a swatch of paper
and a bit of ink as black

as a coal miner’s coffee,
as dark as a memory lost.
Now, let’s begin.
