Overstatement — A Poem

overstatement

“Drama” — C.Birde, 1/20

 

Goosedown

lazy fall and

flutter

twirling

spiraling

earth-

ward

heedless of

phones’ sudden

synchronous

jarring

alarms.

Placid

flurry

passing

sooner

than ratcheted

pulses,

adrenaline

pumped.

Passing

sooner

than

over-

stated

squall”.

    • Thank you kindly. I hoped to convey — visually — the slow, haphazard fall of a single flake of snow during a flurry. I drew inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s poem, “The Mouse’s Tale” 🙂
