This week's words:

Agile; Flaccid; Phantom.

Making Demands

An agile flaccid phantom
has been dogging me
these halcyon days,
whispering in my left ear
mostly that I must
avoid becoming
dust too soon or flaming out
and plunging to earth
in the midst of flight.
This is not easy for me.
I wish a hot shot
berth in pilot lore
and my rain forested life.

  1. Tension, movement, emotion all the things that draw us into this piece. Great job.

  2. Nice way of putting all the three words into a single phrase and working out from there

  3. Quite a unique piece. Algile flaccid phantoms? Who would have guessed?

    1. Thank you. Seemed too obvious to me, actually. I am still not sure.

  4. I think the agile flaccid phantom is always behind us all.
    There's a song which contains the line "no matter where I am, I'm just two steps ahead of that man."
    One day, he catches up.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
