Best Poem of Richard Phipps

Prevention Retention

I love the unintentional,
the teasing, unconventional.
Thinking always in rhyme,
unnecessary prose in three-quarter time,
but as musical as an off-key coyote.

Prisoner of my own intention.
Obviously of my own invention.
Locked in a battle for prevention retention,
Fighting to survive, permanent apprehension.

Questioning whether to rock the boat,
test soap that floats,
or wade in the wake of contention.

Empty-headed, trounced in dreams.
Empty-handed, denounced with screams.
Wrapped in a web of trumped-up schemes.

Vision Subdivision

As a vision she appeared to me last night,
and lit the room with her ethereal light.

Though lasting for only a fleeting time,
as my lack of diversity came back to remind.

I knew this vision soon would lapse,
as my life-long die was firmly cast.
