Marshyland

Hey there! It’s National Poetry Writing Month. So go write some bad poetry! Let loose! Have fun. I did.

DRAGONFLIES!!!

Marsh, marsh, marsh!

Summer sun, so harsh, harsh, harsh!

Gimme some Marsh-y-land!

Windsand

Eastern shore reeds

Beads

of sweat on my brow

As I walk along the Beach Road anyhow.

If this shoulder landslides,

If this dirt gives to mud-

Do you think I care?

Do you think I dare?

Marsh, marsh, marsh

Harsh, harsh, harsh

I don’t mind

Leaving humans behind

Me and my kind

We’ll live in there.

When the Darners alight on reed tips, I’ll be a still egret, my wings like new fingertips-

Rustle bustle get blown

I don’t even know!

Amberwings in August staleness

trying to find a way to quale this

the marsh

LIVE DIE SOAR

Alight here

Along the road

Along the shoulder

MARSH HARSH MARSH…mallow!
