A Poetry Sporadical of Repeating Forms

Lines Written Just Before Driving into the Ditch

by Janice D. Soderling

You warn me not to put on airs,
for wheres
the proof? Play safe or be undone.
The fun
soon ends. True love gives tit for tat.

In that,
you err. Love is a gold brickbat
hurled through a window late at night.
Loves not a seat belt buckled tight,
for wheres the fun in that!
