Question: When do you know when the poem is finished!?
by TD Euwaite

As I flip through the faces
in my chifferobe,
cleft chins, chiseled features…
fissures furrowed by
tears that flowed like rainwater
over lips hung low as Yorick’s,
I look for the one with the throbbing sobs,
vibrato as no cello could mimic!.
The one that moans…
Plu plu plu please!
