A Poem Is A Cluster Bomb

A poem assemble ideas,
Concentrates experience
Await its time, place
For its own release
A Poem is a cluster bomb

A Poem explodes
Particle by particle
Projectile by projectile
Piece by piece,
Varying impact on the way
A poem is a cluster bomb

Out of a poem come wails
Out of a poem come hails
Out of a poem comes repair
Out of a poem comes despair
A Poem is a cluster bomb

It spreads in ripples
It travels like a storm
It is fashioned in riddles
It can pour painful scorn
A poem is a cluster bomb!

    bees of sweet words assemble the honey of cluster...........
    Through life's roller-coaster...........and when when it bursts
    it is a blaster bespattered here and there, everywhere.10+++ (Report) Reply

And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
