Not A Prince, But A Hero Nonetheless - Poem by s./j. goldner

i caught a frog and put him in a
fishbowl
and said,
'now you know how i feel.'

and he swam to the
bottom
and
drowned himself.

    Sorry, but I have another comment - this reminds me of William Carlos Willians. So sweet, so cold the plums you left in the refrigerator, which I (unasked, uninvited) ate. (Report) Reply

    This is gorgeous, so evocative. I feel the orientals might like it - I certainly did. You have a gift of packing many garments into your suitcase, to coin (a perhaps unwelcome, and inept) metaphor. (Report) Reply
