Death and Commas

I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

Death and Commas

Chase led by hounds

hell and handbags

death and commas.

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Brave character

leaves on a bus to serve

small town, first love

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Her broken heart grieves

reads his obituary

twenty years later

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Lives in armchair

writes memoirs

death and commas

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Just die in the end

always seems heroic

really just anticlimactic

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Brings them back to life

certain stories sell

continual battle between

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)

death and commas.

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)



Reminder of the mark

that damn mark

precise rule of usage

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Balance maintained

atlas as grammar

lord of my thoughts

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Death and commas

we did choose this path

to understand how to die

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


How to write

how to use commas

how to combine

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)


Death and commas

Lies in story

Betrayal (Break) Irony (Break)

(Break)

A fun poem. I need a refresher course on comas. Just when I think I have down pat, I use a coma that's not needed.

Thank you Anne and Bill and Happy Easter to you both. I am getting the details done on the baskets before the kids wake up. Jamie

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 12, 2020:

Loved it! Happy Easter to you and yours!

Amusing! The comma seems to be many people's nemesis, though I can never understand why. Great poem, Jamie! Original too.
