inconsequential reasons

inconsequential reasons

A Poem by Paloma
"

lipstick the pig

"




Slap lipstick on that pig, 

 poetry still shan't rhyme

ripple effect of rhythmically

  persuaded dominoes 

fallen amid small potatoes

of critically acclaimed 

creepy birdwatchers,

perfunctory cause and effect

notwithstanding inconsequential

pauses cursing inclement reasons,

no never mind the seasoning

It's rather abstract, I know, but if it pertains to you, you just might get it.

Some folks think poetry MUST rhyme, but that is antiquated thinking. Hmmm....creepy birdwatchers makes me think of the trolls we have experienced here. Not sure what you are actually ranting at here, but I can feel anger between the lines. Lydi**

Amen to this. Adding "drama" to the craft does not make one's material creative or even interesting. If the food doesn't taste good, the extra seasoning is just a cover-up.

Master of metaphor, I see. Continuously impressed.

You get me, thanks so much Cyntax.
Hey, I wanna be your salt pig. Whether this pertains to me is of little consequence, it is indubitably up my street but then, I'm just an ornithological guy..........All Good Things my fine literary friend... N

Okay, that made me laugh. :)
As you know, I'm no good at abstract, but I still really love many of your fresh unexpected phrases: "lipstick on that pig" . . . "small potatoes" . . . "never mind the seasoning." You have such an "outside-the-dots" imagination!

I'm that person that still tries to jam those square pegs into round spaces! :)
I love abstract art because it can be whatever you want it to be. Here I see confidence in being the artist you are; one with a sharp wit and clever tongue. Someone who isn't afraid to experiment and get out of the "classic poetry" boundaries because you know that art isn't form.

It's quite an experimental piece and I loved it. You have quite a particular voice, Paloma -- one which I really like.

I think poetry in general can be whatever you want it to be. Many thanks for your glowing review, m.. read more
Those who write from the perspective of truth and not imitation generally get my attention. But I also see poetry as healing ... and the poet can do whatever they want in word to obtain this. but in the end free verse is infinitely more forgiving than rhyme. Getting the rhythm even if you play around with syncopation and being original in word and phrase is not as an easy task. Personally I usually find narrative poems are a best fit to rhyme and meter. The poem should drive structure and not structure drive the poem ... if that makes sense ... it is the phat that makes the porcus and not the glam that forms the word:)

YES, yes. You've simplified what I was trying to say, there's no write way. Thanks so much! :)

I think it depends on what kind of poetry you're inclined to read.
Hello, Paloma! :)
This is a mind twister. Is it about bad poetry?

Such a poetic response dear poet! :)
You had me from the first lines. Lipstick on a pig. Still a pig, old grandpa told me often. Many statements with meaning and reasons to be said. Thank you Paloma for sharing the excellent poetry.
