A Flash Poem of 55 Words


This bird's gonna die 
The gas is on 'cause 
I opened the valve  

I'll pull closed the door 
Turn the fatal key 
You're after the bird  

You can watch him die 
Go slowly to sleep 
Die, die, you are dead  

Throw the key back in 
Suicide they'll think  
Though murder it is 

 Ilk must die

 - At the above link Kerry has given us some information about an artist named "McMonster".  She has displayed one picture of his, an ink art work showing an owl watching some idle machinery from which came my idea for this poem. 

It is also time for Flash writing,  my offering has exactly 55 words not including the title.

A Poem using three American Sentence Haiku poems

Now Mother is gone, away, there's no place to go, suitcases stay home

Without Mother dear she ruled matriarch supreme there was no other

Our mother has passed I am it, new matriarch, for that there's no book
