you are chalk & I am cheese;
somehow you became my smorgasbord
while I write poetry on your blackboard
now the truckle is almost-eaten,
our poetry neither scans nor rhymes
yet here we are (if eroded and over-ripe)
sharing the same silvered platter,
wondering how we managed at all to matter;
to travel this far or to be here still at all
thus far to a uniqueness we can't understand
bound as one by a single
dented but infrangible ampersand
you are now cheesy chalk & I
chalky cheese; different textures but
after all these years we've
come together well, haven't we?
An extraordinary poem, brilliant in its own way. The images'chalk' and ‘cheese' are accentuated by use of words/images like smorgasbord and blackboard, and then taken to further heights. (Contd)
An interesting combination, kind of like the cheese packet in a box of macaroni and cheese.
A brilliant write TFS
4. The efforts you have put in to add rhyme and rhythm to the smorgasbord of imagery have not gone in vain, dear poet. Enjoyed.

2. The beauty of enigmatic images epitomes in ‘ampersand'. And then the concluding lines steals the readers' heart and mind.
