Cheesy Moon (Ghazal) - Poem by Ben Gieske

Look up and gaze at craters on the cheesy moon.
A cow, a spoon jumping over the cheesy moon.

Opening the refrigerator, what cheese now?
How about more of tasty, crusty, cheesy moon?

Dare I taste the zesty tang of pepper-jack cheese,
Mix and dance with the tango of a cheesy moon?

My office cloudy, loveless, lifeless gray
Could use some life-giving zest of a cheesy moon.

Brie and Camenbert, Ben loves soft and crusty cheese,
Swiss and Gruyère with wide eyes opened, cheesy moon.

    Written with such flair and finesse Ben and I can see why it deserved to be published! I am not a lover of the Ghazal format, but after reading this I can see that the repetitions do not have to be boring. love Karin (Report) Reply
