NaPoWriMo 04.30.07 (Whew! Finished just in time!)

[not by me at all but by Jamison Driskill]

The Middle

Clever as cinder blocks,
Round as a Shafer sonnet,
Back in style once again,
On loan from the islands of paradise,
The much talked about,
The renowned and respected,
Uptown tonight,
For one night only,
Let loose from the dregs and water,
Salvaged from the ocean floors of Texas,
Setting the lake on fire,
Bubbling up once more,
Hanging from the edge
Of your bedroom window,
With room for improvement,
I politely ask that you use my proper name.

Call me the Shoeless Piper,
Or the penguin,
Or Jim.

I’ll not say a word.
