Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A fun little poem I wrote when exploring assonance.
The Empty Fish Tank

Giggling water gurgles
from a guppy's ghost town tank
It sits fishless in my kitchen;
Stubborn husband I have to thank.

He'd see the stretch of wall undressed
should the vacant tank disappear;
That the spot would sport a buffet
is ignored by his id austere.

The battle of mismatched iron wills
rages on the silent front line.
I'll bide my time, but once I find
         that perfect piece....
                   The space is MINE.
