The Ghost of Pivot

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Poetics:  Are You Listening?
(posted by Merril)

"At the end of the year, there are many lists put out of best of this or that. I noticed this New York Times list of best podcasts of 2022. I confess I have not listened to any of them, but unlike the lists of books that had too many wordy, unwieldy titles, the podcast titles can easily be inserted into a poem."

"So. . .from the list below, choose at least two titles, and write a poem including the exact words of the titles within the poem."

The Titles:

Articles of Interest: American Ivy

I Was Never There

Legacy of Speed

Not Lost


Reveal: After Ayotzinapa

Rumble Strip


This American Life

Ghost in the Burbs

This American Life continues
with its latest serial,
'Ghost in the Burbs'.  
Based on a true story,
a ghost has been heard,
sometimes seen by folks
in the township of
Pivot, Upstate New York.
This is a limited series,
as the ghost is purported 
to have left the small
township for night life
of a city.

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.

    Pivot is a great name for a town…perfect for a ghost! (K)


  6. There are times when you seek nightlife… at other times you seek silence…

    This made me smile. It reminded me of the old time radio shows, announcing the happenings.
