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.
