FOUR POETS’ THREE: SECOND CHALLENGE.

POETRY: FREESTYLE
EXERCISE ON COUPLETS…

HUNGER, HOME-MADE, SCHOOL,
CANDLE-STAND, PREACH & MAP

SAM

HUNGER

I ponder on
the deep sensation that holds me under

Are my
desires nothing but digestive ambitions? I wonder

HOME-MADE

She was a
lone-made with a light-skin, the smell of pomade

I said my
feelings are not exotic; my love for you is home-made.

SCHOOL

Unlike most
kids, I loved going to school

For I always
looked forward to Ms. Monica’s backside.

CANDLE-STAND

Like a monumental
epitome of pre-electrical perception

My waxed
candle stand tells the story of my nightly conceptions.

PREACH

Just as the
word “anger” is a letter short of “danger”,

“Preach” is
a letter more to “reach”.

MAP

Momentarily,
I’m lost like life’s scalar quantity of energy with no direction

Possessing a
map but not a compass to point.

ANRE

HUNGER

Hunger
suppresses a man’s creativity

Mocks his
calm, teases his serendipity.

HOME-MADE

Love shines
in variants of texture and shades

The finest
grades are both domestic and home-made.

SCHOOL

Figures,
farce and pantomime

Savoring
thoughts like the finest wine.

CANDLE-STAND

Sycophants
applaud the transient candle,

Shamelessly
ignoring the stand’s firm handle.

PREACH

Down my
throat, into my belly, he strives to reach

But which
words of inches deep, could hardly go beyond my lips

MAP

Those
brilliant eyes guided my heart to anchor in your love

Sojourning,
savouring and swaying when two hearts fit like a glove.

LEON

HUNGER

Like
flossing teeth…

And a better
title is bon appétit.

HOME-MADE

With
cinnamon, garlic, seasoning and seed

Don’t
question unfamiliarly, a little boy’s greed.

SCHOOL

The words,
the letters, like A B C

And AB C’s
D, but just before E.

CANDLE-STAND

I feel weak,
sick to my weary gland

Don’t let me
dim, you hold my light like a candle-stand.

PREACH

Pretty sad I
can’t often use words as much to curse in a church when I think

Cos in the
Lord’s house, you write with a golden pen so no need for ink.

MAP

Felt I could
use me more to chart a course

Session is
over, scripts are taken, including my pulse.
