Poetry Shelf – Verses Inked – The Grasshopper


The Grasshopper

Draw the comparisons if you may,
with the stealth of a sniper in hostile territory
or the fortitude of a monk meditating upon the day

This is just to say
Imagery worthy of a William C William poem
like the delicious plums in the icebox, so sweet and so cold

So to speak of an inconsequential time lapse
when the predator deprived of prey
contemplates the virtue of schnapps

This wizard of the hurt locker
super hero, show stopper
altogether improper, the grass hopper
