Sunday Scribbling #107

"Compose": I nearly decomposed doing it.

quicksilver decomposition

D eadly cinnabars trill
E ven-tempered,
C alibrated
O bsessions—
M ythologies dispersed,
P lainsongs unearthed,
O bsidian trine:
S ing for your supper, urchin,
E ach and every time.

quicksilver compote

My right-brained
dizzle
twithers in the
blitz of left-
brained
compost. Bring
your rastas to the pas
ta party—plastic
parties, Vanelli
shrines, acu
punctured quaff-
boasts.

I must be dizzling in my right brain, as I can't quite put my tongue on the word for--OK, my left brain just turned over the compost, sunnyside up--ACROSTIC. That's the word.

I dig the whole calibrated spectrum of the compost heap here. From picked-apart acrostic to big bowl of tangled pasta.

San: I don't know if you've checked out these scribblers, but their prompts are maddeningly left-brained. But, I am hooked, apparently, nonetheless. God knows what I'd do with a right-brained prompt: probably do an income statement, just to spite myself.

My mouth is still open and my mind twithering - this is an enjoyable read!

Very cool. I like your take on this week's prompt.

January: Thank you for your words. I find the prompts a bit maddening: my first impulse is immediately tangential, just like my own students when I offer them a prompt. Big pastures for all of us: thankfully, the Scribblers admit all comers, too.
