Written for: dVerse Poets Pub, “Arrangements by Emily Blincoe” (Posted by Grace)
I have chosen her work, Arrangements, the theme for this Poetics. If you are a tidy person, the one who conscientiously arranges things, then her photos would speak to you. If not, its fine too as you can write in rebellion to the neat arrangements of things in a canvas.
If your palate rebels at ingestion
of fiery foods, line up selection
in order–for your protection–
by mildest to blazing perfection.
If you have a predilection
to sort by size or section,
be prepared for complexion
to flush crimson at interjection
of red-hot peppers that play with digestion.
