Weekly Writing Challenge: Playing With Space

I don’t write poetry much any more – probably since I found an old notebook from when I was an angsty teenager.

But then I bought some magnetic poetry – the Shakespeare edition, the food edition and the music edition for a bit of variety. Because it’s just taking words that are already there and playing around with them, it doesn’t feel like writing poetry; it just feels like having fun.

Eat oft
     this luscious symphony
Of pink lust 
     and drunken lover's grace

And sing melancholy 
     from sweet jam tongue

For there is much ado about trifle
