poetry thursday...my voice.

my voice is
low
and rough
around the edges
deep
and monotone...

jagged
and
full of
staccato beat...

bullets
in point form-
nothing supple,
nothing sweet.

i'm a scribbler,
a scrabbler,
a dibbler,
a dabbler,
i jot.
i record.
i retreat.

(more authentic voices...)

I like the rhythm of this - the way it speeds up at the end. Very "staccato" just like your voice.

And my dear, you've got a way with the written word. I love your poetry, it really speaks to me and when you publish your first book of poems, I'm going to be asking for an autographed copy!!
