Poetics: Quality Poems – Craftsmanship



Craftsmanship is taking many small things that might not seem so great to make one great thing that is fantastic

Craftsmanship is looking at masters and wishing you could do things exactly the way they do

Craftsmanship is seeing an image in your head and making it a real object in your life

Craftsmanship is anything that is created that wasn’t there before, whether others like it or not, because you made it

Craftsmanship is having faith in yourself and your abilities, knowing that all your effort does pay off in the finished product

Indecent Attempt

Shining through the wispy clouds Under the Cherry Moon

An Indecent Proposal there would happen very soon

The color of night was black but shown by the moonlight

The Catwoman was swept away as if in fearful flight

The Dogman came with his brigade behind him standing proud

There was no fear in her green eyes, she nearly laughed out loud

He lost his nerve and told his troops to recede into the dark

She smiled and waved a quick goodbye that shone just like a spark.

A Real Health Problem: Compilation 08/31/2022

When I look in the mirror and look at my legs
I glimpse limbs that are swollen like hardboiled eggs
This Hypostasis was brought to the light
It isn’t a joke, it’s a sad, lethal plight
Its like a bad prank of the lower body
Responsive to fluid under skin you can’t see.
I head to the doctor on a bus ride to town
to get me the update likely making me frown
I’m the underdog here, I had no clear choice
Antics of real organs that haven’t a voice
In a world like a mansion with places to hide
The fluids stay put on the body’s insides
I ask you to tell loved ones, “With your body have stealth
and remind them to keep a good eye on their health.
