WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE A DOMINO
black and white.
Fan before each player.
Clack authoritatively on the table.
used to stand awkwardly in long lines,
play along. Then
choose a random time to fall. Cause

This is actually yesterday's poem...Internet access is spotty for me right now, so today's poem will appear when it appears. Dominoes...
I had a fun time with this poem -- it surprised me by wanting its rhymes to be at the beginnings of lines, instead of the ends. And the idea that dominoes embody both complete order and complete chaos...I can totally relate!
Diane has the Poetry Friday roundup today at Random Noodling. I'll visit posts as soon as I am Internet-able!
