Ode To Pizza

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet – Horatian Ode
“The Horatian Ode is simply a stanzaic form in which all stanzas are structured in the same pattern at the discretion of the poet. (rhyme, meter, number of lines/stanzas etc.), more technically it is “nonce stanzaic” or a “homostrophic” ode (ode made up of same structured stanzas created specifically for that poem).”

Men adapt at flipping pizzas
amaze me with their stamina
   – too old to learn new tricks
   – I’ll leave that to mystics

I love when crust is crispy and thin;
a Margherita is a win-win.
   – Tomatoes and basil
   – extra cheese on the table

And all those toppings you can choose from
pepperoni, anchovies for some
   – sausage, meatball, onion
   – or a plain one, well done

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
