To Play on Words

 

 

A word, some words, a clever phrase

A witty play on the usual definitions

It’s in and on, before, above –

The usual prepositions.

 

We smith these terms to make our art –

It’s no oxymoron to say, we are like our pronouns – possessive

For each new scribbling that we start –

Are our heart’s revealing missives.

 

And so it is that each day, in conjunction with each new sun –

We run-on into the dawn – and dash dashes just for fun –

Our playful words like a simile –

As we explore each and every possibly.
