Just Four Friggin’ Lines #4


Just Four Friggin’ Lines is a new poetry series by Miss Snarky Pants – okay, it’s the only poetry series, unless you count my Big Bang Theory Haiku – written especially for people who like their poetry the way they like their flu shots: fast and painless. This might not be Shakespeare, but it’s Just Four Friggin’ Lines

  1. After Rothko:
    A smear of asparagus
    puddles under girder rust
    above a chewed dandelion.

    1. Thank you, Carrie. The selection of that word took up at least two of the four minutes or so I give myself to write these poems. I think I’ll later publish a book entitled, “The Other 96 Friggin’ Lines.” It will complete each of these poems, in either prose or verse. ‘Cause I’m sure that’ll be a HUGE seller. Wait, is that a knock? Yes, just another editor beating down my door, dying to publish poetry and long poems, no less. 😉

      1. Haha, well, where there’s a will there’s a way. And I hear you on the time spent finding the perfect word. Many a minutes have been lost by my trying to do the same.

      2. I’m just thrilled my two minutes were, in some way, appreciated. Get you on time suckage when it comes to words. Thesaurus.com is open all day long on my computer. But you’re a perfectionist; I resemble that emotion. 😉

    1. Thank you! I agree with your definition of the essence of poetry. That’s what I like about your work. You’re not trying to be obscure; you’re communicating, photographing a moment with words. You understand the important of using the senses and visceral imagery in your work.
