Written for dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille #104: “Oh, We’re in a Fix”
(posted by whimsygizmo).
“Today, I want you to fix your thoughts (and poems) on the word fix.
Whether you fixate on the word awhile, or go for a quick fix, be sure to include some form of the word in your 44-word poem: Fix. Fixture. Fixing. Fixable. Fixation. Fixer-upper.
Who knows, maybe poetry really can fix the world.
Fixin’ to fry up
some crispy chicken,
as doorbell chirps.
Bad timin’ as usual,
Bea Lee, chief
gossip, comes callin’.
Sipping ice tea, she starts.
Who’s getting engaged, divorced,
pregnant. Fixed on listenen’, my golden
chicken chars black. How to
fix this ‘afore dinner?
