Sorry, I Have To Take Your Keys


Joyce Hemsley

Avatars of metaphor and other expressive skills
Propagate their cryptic verse from sharp and haughty quills
ed innuendos compel me to confes0Ō  ‹ s
That I havenít got an inkling what theyíre trying to express

Tipsy from the heady brew of their own intense potation
They ramble on incessantly without much connotation
I wish I could sneak up sometime on one a tap-tap-tapping
Grab away that little board and commence with heavy slapping



Joyce Hemsley

Chinese four-line poem:

No endomorphin will ease your pain
tears will flow like falling rain
with a sinking feeling beyond compare
"the hurt" of a broken love affair

poem: No one cares about the word
just give them validation.
Artistry? Why thatís absurd,
promote the congregation;
repartee is more preferred
than wry accentuation
whose subtle nuance may have stirred
a new appreciation.
