fragmented insomnia

highest bidder
took the rook
who bowed ceremoniously
as the crowd realized…
myopic leprechauns
couldn’t read
last row of vision chart
for all the armadillos
in iowa.

now we see-through
while learning to crochet
in the dark garden
with gnomes who have filed
judiciously brief amicus curiae
on behalf of sterile

A modern “fragment” poem for dVerse with Laura …not sure i achieved the goal but sometimes it’s just plain fun to play with words and write something nonsensical!

    I’ll bet those crocus’s were merely dormant and the gnome’s petition stirred them in spring.

    I have corrected the link now… love this and I can actually feel you had a lot of fun writing this.

    your fragments are curious drops from a stream of consciousness -which fits the experience of insomnia!
    p.s. your link up link was broken so found you another way!

    sounds about right for an insomniac night – with a little wizardry thrown in 🙂
