How I Amuse My Poetry Muse Vol XII

Her clutch was so strong
it left him on crutches;
Ruptured his crotch and
made it go blotchy,
So he got quite crotchety
when the surgery went wrong –
Cause now he been left
with a botched, splotchy schlong
(Inspired by #microprompt ‘Clutch’)

Paved, narrow streets,
Cobbled together
not just with slabs and stones
but with jousts, and fights, and songs –
With the sounds of running feet,
And the sighs when lovers speak,
Their ways are paved
with a thousand memories
of humanity
all gently worn away now into dreams…
(Inspired by SableSwanV prompt ‘Narrow Streets’)

A life without intensity
Is merely a life half-lived –
So give all of you
to all you do
til you’ve nothing left to give;
And when you go
you’ll do so
knowing that you truly lived.
(Inspired by #TastyPoem prompt ‘Vehement/Fervent’)

Lines of lonely chairs
a lost assembly in
a forgotten room –
Maybe I should have stayed there
but I got out while I could.

When you’re a zombie
A blind date means your date’s eyes
have rotted away

This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading! I can also be found on
