Christopher J. Jarmick… Poem Starter

 

POEM STARTER 1009

If you insist
on pretending to be someone else,
then you’ll never know
who you really are.

 

AWARD WINNING POET

Her poetry: technical mathematical formula perfection
without a trace of sentimentality in dull metaphors
obscurely connected to emotions
resonating as if written by extinct languages
known only as Yonkalla or Rumsen.
Applause, applause.
Breathe.

 

BLOCK

When the eye of the needle
blinks
I can’t make the words
go through.

 

POEM STARTER       90210

Like depressed delphiniums in vivid blue
who never succumb to their own toxicity
the young Hollywood starlets
at an industry cocktail party,
dream of a Beverly Hills Housewife
middle age.
