Brian gave us a puzzle prompt in Saturday's Poetics at dVerse. I had a poem that I had written 23 years ago, but, I wanted to write something new, and I couldn't find the old one. This is still a very rough (hahaha) draft, as I want it to be more crosswordy and have a better flow.  I attempted ironing it out a little, but I am instead having to admit that not all of the kinks are out of my computer. So. Very. Frustrating.

And I do apologize if this was a little too blue, but I did at least used to warn you that that sort of language could pop up.

    1. oooh, I really like something I wrote being compared to a box jellyfish! I want to see one in real life, but my strong aversion to pain and dieing has kept me from fulfilling that desire. And how much fun is cussin'?
