NaPoWriMo Poem for April 36th

per chance a DISGRUNTLED RABBI

one die has adjectives
the other professions

CHAGRINED DYNAMIC LOST EXONERATED SOULLESS MASKED
BEEKEEPER SAXOPHONIST CLERK GONDOLIER RABBI PITCHMAN

the storyteller had them custom-made
and she has another pair on order

YOUNG EXALTED INSOUCIANT COLD MISBEGOTTEN MIFFED
PROFESSOR LOCKSMITH AUDITOR COP CHAUFFEUR OMBUDSMAN

each pair of dice will yield 36 characters
she rolls the pair she has

DISGRUNTLED
RABBI

that’s a challenge her not being jewish and her feeling so chipper today
not feeling up to the good rabbi’s story she rolls the dice again

DISGRUNTLED
RABBI

holy cow what are the odds but on the other hand she didn’t shake them much
she rattles and rattles and rattles and rolls

DISGRUNTLED
RABBI

now she is no longer chipper she is spooked
she rattlerattles and tosses them so they bounce off the baseboard

  1. As we move past the usual finish date of the month, some of these poems are taking on some aspects of Stephen King’s Insomnia, which is one of my favorite King novels…. 😉

    • I liked Insomnia too. That one minute a go really added up! 🙂
