Can I See Your Poetic License Please? © Joan Boxall November 2013.
…recalls my last car chase, in hot pursuit of an errant poet.
(officer) You’re writing erratically
Like a wild Haiku
Tripping and looping, all over the page.
I’m gonna pull you over and throw the hardcover at you…(siren and flashers on)
Heh, you didn’t signal…pull over…(on radio)…Constable Cutterdown here, I’m not reading her. Licence plate, RUB41ZEE; driving an Alice-in-mun-ro-land Hybrid, 10-4…
To hear the rest of the poem, join Joan here at North Vancouver City Library on November 27th for An Evening of Poetry where she’ll be reading along with Dina Del Bucchia. The event is free, but please register.
