queues no, crowds no
need no patience for
to wait no time
buy we on-line
dissatisfaction we unload
media on social
to never people met we have
politicians and celebrities
of headlines in a blizzard
sensational of stories
if clicks no more there were
the nettle grasp we might
face of face to conversation
human synchronisation

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Scribbling for Poetics: Grandma?

Paul has given us a couple of examples for this Tuesday’s prompt: ‘anyone lived in a pretty how town’ by ee cummings and ‘A Carafe, that is a Blind Glass’ by Gertrude Stein. He hopes that the challenge is quite clear and would like us to pen please a word of poetical prose, rhyme it may do so or not so maybe, and at all attention to grammar we should pay no.

  1. Another title could be “Snap”. You soared & rocked the prompt, obviously comfortable in Cummingspeak–as am I. I like your line /to never people met we have/.

  2. Yay! You nailed it here! Great response to the challenge. And oh yes….that social media and clicking on links…the news assails us and the “friends” keep sending us the doodads of their day as if we want to know about their red ballons and carpet sweeping. Yep — face to face for me is much preferred. 🙂
    LOVE your title here too…read a line, click, read a line, click. 🙂
