Toasted Currency

Putting money where the mouth is
hiss, a pat of butter, in the pan
hand-in-hand, crisp bills ready to be fried

wide-eyed & holy belly
jelly spread on toasted currency
tea, pot whistling on the stove top

chop green peppered breakfast,
what-next fantasies, & sprinkle
single most important deal today

allay those hunger pangs as self is served


Marian over at runaway sentence challenged me to write another chain rhyme (a challenging, but fun form) this weekend, and here’s what I came up with. Read hers — an homage to The Dark Tower — here. The chain rhyme form was first brought to my attention by Evelyn over at Filling a Hole. Read one of her chain rhymes here.


Certainly Feeble

Sure foot slips into certainly feeble
needles and pins pierce a walk in the park

lark no less than the sum of its senses
pretenses to scenario’s worst case

bracing self for yet another drab day
way is night falling into rotation

elation at simple pat on the back
pack too much baggage to stay on two feet
