Knick-Knacks


Democritus

Knick-Knacks

Spell is cast by word alone
Contrivance left to us,
Ornaments of firmament
Up-ended into dust.

Three days raveling-
 minutes with a pen,
mouthful of words,
bite of light -
perhaps
tin.

  1. I love "bite of light, perhaps tin". Wonderful knick-knack of a piece.

  2. I had to copy and pste your words in the last six lines to make then large enough for me to read! Take pity on aging eyes and use bigger text, perhaps? LOL
