Wordle 91

beatnik bar

the diminishing palace
of diminishing virtue
drunk on ditch poetry

the poet not only bends
the rules, he breaks them
and has bad line breaks too

this long room full of drunks
with diminishing wishes
and broken steps

(or is that
diminishing steps
and broken wishes?

no
better to go with the first
don’t overthink it)

they burden the poet
with their life poetry
the virtues they dropped

and he recites aloud
steps with each iamb
on the room’s wooden floor

the stories of their ditched dreams
the virtue of drams
in this poetry drunk palace

  1. As always, I am fascinated at the variety of responses that rise so beautifully from the same dozen words. Nicely done!.
