Topic: oops

one time there was a party-we dressed up to the nines.
we massacred the golden goose. we wallowed in the brine.
we ostracized the Emptiness to its own dusty design.
we crafted a new Forever out of goose feathers and twine.

we laughed until our shadows cried. that was the funniest thing.
we clapped until we flew up high, as if on broken wing.
we screamed as into the air we rose, clutching veins like string.
subtle shallow souls slipping, like a stone slips sling.

we moved that pitter-patter pity party to the moon.
as stars shone down upon us ghosts like a bandage on a wound,
it seemed the sun was brightest when darkest was the tune.
so us ghosts all sang the same refrain "taken way too soon."

joshua howell

The rhythm really shines in the last stanza. Excellent use of rhyme, not too cheesy or overwrought. Well done!

This has rhyme
From the Hudson River
Down to the Nile.

Good stuff, I love the imagery.
