Two Poems for ‘National Poetry Month[!]’

An Analysis of Three Personality Types

Stable head individual

You’ve lost your way

Now they hear the noise

In your once disciplined mind


Grey-eyed sister

You live easy as the western breeze

That gentle floatation device

Are your feet


Asymmetric brother

How you lack balance!

The world laughs 

As you fumblestep down-the-hall


Kettle and водка 

Who hid this ol’ kettle / ‘neath the floor board?/ And…/ who shall share it with me?/ [S]he who is jolly; and ye which knoweth glee…

And who hath the wings to be free?/ *He who sleepeth without consequence/ And standeth a stand which is understood.

And now that [their] journey is done and through/ I and I found the kettle ‘neath rosewood/ Now m’dear, may I share it with you?
