Stuffed Animal

Stuffed Animal

A Poem by Onoma

it turns out the other point of our 
triangle is worthy of more respect
than you.
don't dare misconstrue this reckoning
as a flattering plea.
walls rumble as they close in, don't 
worry--nothingness will survive.
the uniqueness of your scent, rapidly
signaturing fear--with nails bitten off
like sunflower seeds.
as your latest stuffed animal summons
the courage to come to life--just so it
can run away from you.
flawlessly repeating what it was taught.

Onoma,
Above all, a poem must incite the reader to THINK. Success!
Some poems can stand strong on imagery alone. Success!
Must exhibit a strong voice, unique to the poet. Success!
Should be open to multiple interpretations. Success
And I LOVE the last line!

I personally forgot how to write. I have not been inspired for a very long time. But reading this remind me that even a ramble of thoughts with clever brevities can make for an enjoyable read. I loved this.
