Snooze News

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet – Trimeric

“Trimeric is a four stanza poem. The first stanza has four lines, and the remaining three stanzas have three lines each. The first line of stanzas two through four repeat the respective line of the first stanza.”

The sequence of lines, then, is abcd, b – -, c – -, d – -.

Falling asleep in front of the news,
with heavy lids that blink, then close.
More importantly–I’m up for Jeopardy.
Drones drone on, news only gets worse.

With heavy lids that blink, then close
I miss earthquakes, fires, and stupidity.
Sometimes I think it’s a rerun.

More importantly–I’m up for Jeopardy,
after a good snooze during the news.
Some questions I know, but am too slow.

Drones drone on, news only gets worse–
destruction, corruption, domination.
Good time for a nap.

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.
