Title: Another PostcardArtist: Barenaked Ladies
Album: Everything to Everyone
Notes: I've had "Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me" running through my head since yesterday. I thought it might be fun to explore such an odd piece and see where it took me.
An Aside: It's been awhile since I toyed with a new form, but I found my way over to dVerse Poets Pub yesterday where they introduced the tritina and I thought why not. I have had the opportunity in the past to explore its "older sister" the sestina. That was quite a trying form to work with, but I gave it several tries. This was not as trying, but still.... I took a little liberty with the last line (splitting it as I did). Anyway, here goes.
chimpanzees pose in model worthy shots
they rock bikinis -- girls and boys as well --
some funny some risqué arrived today
my mailbox overflowed with chimps today
atop a bar they danced while downing shots
it seems that most are not behaving well
so many postcards--I'm not feeling well.
they're all addressed to me! but not today
I think it's time for me to call the shots!
I'll pose in shots--
I might as well--
then send those chimps a card or two today!
