I wrote some poems this week based on a form invented by Gregory K. Pincus based on the Fibonacci Sequence. The syllables go 1-1-2-3-5-8…
It was actually a satisfying way of boiling things down to their essences and getting some writing in without great fanfare. I invite you to try it!
Here they are:
blue wet bar
Fancy drinks in a violent world
Pearly’s on her way
Ready or not, ready to grow
I have given up
The broom sulks: Why bother with me?
but not arrogant
Don’t take up too much room, ya hear?
The gifts of new friends,
of self-acceptance and wrinkles
You will go
in the most unexpected rooms
