"In Between the Lines"

"In Between the Lines"

A Poem by Mark


       "In Between the Lines"

Reading in between the lines, is not imagination,

That's where my muse so often dines, though not without frustration.

The literary banquet there, a poet"s rare delight,

A feast to feed a man of prose, a dinner every night.

Please pass the nouns and verbs to me, the adverbs not so much.

I do prefer the adjectives, the metaphors, and such.

A dinner of enlightenment becomes it's own reward,

An appetite, of gourmet delight, is such a smorgasbord.

sometimes this kind of smorgasbord might have us asking the server, "i'm sorry but do you have any themes in the back that arent on the buffet table?

i am looking for a few symbols, some allegory, a few interjections.

scrumptious feast this poem is. it is what is between the lines that is best...that is where we pick from the menu...our own delights.
