Tongue trawls lines
mouth centering
life saver
with cored
limns sweetness
and not; loves
what it sounds like.

    smiles…for me it’s also important how a poem sounds…i usually read mine to myself (after having them read to me by the guy that lives inside my macbook cause his english is better than mine…ha) and if i like how they feel on the tongue, i’m good to go…smiles

    composed on the correct implement, even – and sounding good, rolling from the tongue ~

  3. I do love what your poem sounds like! Lovely sibilants and lilting alliteration.

    Love the lifesavers– way to underline a point! I also love the sound of this, k. and the amazing amount of nourishment you managed to fit into such a small space, like a kitchen cabinet that has six month’s worth of food.

    And, this sounds awesome.

    paying attention to what a verse sounds like was a critical point in my development as a poet….

    it is fun to read this and feel what my mouth does around the words even though I am not reading it aloud. very effective poeticizing. I’ve missed reading your work and will hopefully catch up soon.
    warmly, Jane
