Mistkane Martinets - Poem by gershon hepner

Enjoyment of my poems’ rhyme
is winding up with ancient Scotch
that is precisely right, or like a watch
that, wound up, tells you the right time.
Martinets claim they prefer
blank verses, but they are mistaken;
their bonds, like drinks, will never stir
until by rhymes they have been shaken.

Julianne Moore reports that her favorite moment in her new movie, “Blindness, ” based on the book by that name by Jose Saramago, is when her husband asks her what the time is and she answers: “I don’t know. I forgot to wind my watch.”
