Poetry Marathon Hour 9:

Alrighty – hour 9 with the prompt “hold this on your tongue”


Poem 9:

If you hold this on your tongue

and let it dissolve like a fresh fallen

snowflake two days before your birthday

you will engrain this taste into your memory.


The ink will flow from you freely and often,

the story will be your’s to tell any time you like,

and the poetry will morph so flawlessly with the

creatures and art you surround yourself with

that you may even begin to forget who created what.


I like to think that if you hold this idea

on your tongue for long enough you’ll

almost never be able to forget what my

poetry and I tasted like either.
