Oh by the way... in the heavens, the constellations "Ursa Major" and "Ursa Minor" are translated: "Bear of Great Stature" and "Bear of Small Stature". The latest prompt for Red Wolf Journal (Prompt 318) was to write about the stars...

Don't Poke The Bear

This is no poem.
I mean, it could have been one
but since it is mine,
I get to choose what
I am going to call it.
It's a pompous thing
all carefully wrought
word salad, partly practice
for the real thing
and partly for fun...

I wish I was true to form
and worth time and space
like real poets

Written by the shade of Pinocchio
who wished to be a real boy‎
and who if a real poet
would really have written
about the stars

  1. A good poem by an excellent poet! I enjoyed this ne.

    1. Thank you for that one. I will pass it along to the real poet.

  2. It's all true what you have written. I don't think it is possible for you to write badly.

    1. I rarely let the bad writing survive in any way. I learned the waste bin is an essential tool.


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