random rhyme

broken butterknives
scattered through the drawer
sprigs of mistletoe
trampled on the floor


The first two lines came to my head this morning, apparently from nowhere.  then I knew I wanted to rhyme with floor, and the word trample seemed to fit the mood.  mistletoe is a word that looks cool, and trampleable.  i had clumps at first, but my roommate offered sprigs, which makes a better contrast.

Hey, so I'm thinking of resurrecting poetry chill evenings at MCXL. I was thinking of Thursday nights after 9pm... not necessarily every week. Interested?
