Rolled Over by the Good Times

 

This poem is flat on its back
Decked out in beads
Passed by and forgotten
Its party days are over
No words left to dance through
These vacant lines on blank paper
It will now march to the beat
Of a different meter – slow down
Become reflective, introspective
Make each syllable accountable
Tread hand-in-hand with its muse
On soft iambic feet

  1. I like the title, Candy, and love the angle of this poem as a hungover reveller. Poor old poem, with ‘No words left to dance through’, slowed down to ‘Tread hand-in-hand with its muse / On soft iambic feet’. I hope it has an effective cure!
