fragile paper flesh
torn, folded and copied
wadded distress
corners turn curve

pressing front into back
converted from
into mass

dimensions of one
forming multiplicity

weighted metal depth
imprinted face
a pocketed jingle
without my crease

A couple of wonderful groups, Facial Expression Poetry and dVerse Poets Pub recently had prompts around the thought of  change. It was a prompt I enjoyed and although I missed contributing at the time, I knew I wanted to pen words to the theme. My thanks for the inspiration to these great groups.

  1. I remember this challenge at dVerse! Glad you tackled this! You created such a wondeful poem. I love the musicality — the fg-pp-fs sound at the start and the syncopation. This is a great joy to say out loud. Excellent!

  2. Some first lines speak to me softly and say, thats enough of that. The first line whispered that this was a good piece worth reading, so I did and it was!

    I only hear whispered voices in the afternoons;-)
