Thread: Please help me find great poems!

    Bayview -- absolutely none of my business, so you of course may completely ignore my request, tell me to perform an anatomically impossible act upon myself. . .whatever. You could even tell me to go jump. . . . .in a Private Message. Some people put up their photo, others post an avatar of Something that amuses or moves them, etc. Then there are some of our fellow poets that choose, as is their absolute right, to leave the space empty or blank etc. Your image, however, is a full-colour image of a female front-on head view with the features blanked out. Forgive me for just bein' a Kurious Kritter. . .and remember all yer "go to hell" options!

    It's ME! (artist's rendering, obviously).

    I don't use my own photo for publicity-type stuff, so I asked someone to draw this for me. So... it's ME!

    Upon this gloomy scene, a Spirit that strove
    For truth, and like the Preacher found it not.

    Here's a great poem, imo. "Pop! Goes Korea" by Franny Choi:

    ETA: Oops, it's not 10-12 lines as requested in the original post but then again, that was from 2015.

    One dark night, in the middle of the day
    Two dead men got up to fight.
    Back to back, they faced each other.
    They drew their swords and shot each other.
    A deaf policeman heard the noise,
    and came and shot those two dead boys.
    If you don't believe this lie is true,
    then ask the blind man, he saw it too.


    That's the only poem I know. The only other poetry I know rhymes with penis, so I'll spare you.
