Poem of the day: couch

by | Apr 12, 2020 | poetry | 7 comments

Today I learned something about the word “couch.”

And I felt silly. Hence this “masterpiece.”

This Underwood Champion came to me from Venezuela. It has elite spacing (12 cpi), but the characters are unusually small.

    With a wink and a nod to Ogden Nash, perhaps?

    Thanks for the compliment. It does seem a tad Ogdeny.

    Oooh, now *that* is a handsome Underwood! Those look great in gloss black and chrome. (:

    This is great, like the poems I used to read as a kid, if there was a goofy ink drawing it would be vaguely Silverstein-esque. More so the second half than the first… I like the whole poem though, and I am impressed by the variation in tone and style throughout the month.
    Here is a topic: pebbles.
