what’s in a poem?

photoart & poem – ©2018 Laura Granby

visuals in verse is poetry
strip-lit ideas along ley lines
– rhymes seasoned to taste

melodious metres that pulse and quicken
a tick-tock lexical diction
worming away with sound

skaters on figures of speech
– or drydock dictionaries  when poems
fail to sail us listeners ashore
