May I have another
by Steve Herring
This spring, I found a fault line in your poem,
but what I saw crumbling was me not you.
You said, enjambment’s good, keep going.
Kindly, you offered me synesthesia, but I end-stopped.
With great consonance, your persona winded up
and cold-cocked me like a batter bunting a ball.
I turned like Derek Jeter and rounded a constellation.
Knocked off my feet, I hit the ground like a quatrain.
Who else but me gets sucker punched in a poem?

I would like to remind you of the Dennis Price show which some of us will be attending on May 12th at 8 PM EST. So far, it is me, MaryJo Balistreri (via telephone) and Robert Giron. The three Herndon Middle School winners will also be joining us.
