The Best Poem Of mark nwagwu

Enter The Poem

Come in enter the poem
why stand there like an iceberg out of sorts
in the tropics dripping noise baked
in fiery waters.

Come in enter the poem

balls of verbs rolled into joy
subjects at the sharpened fore
fill your past tensed famished soul

rhyming tendrils comb your hair
adjectives in starchy flair
sweet the smell of inflorescence
atop the noun of lofty essence

Come in enter the poem
live in symphony of life's distances
rendered in notes of trembling nuances
