✓ For dVerse: Quadrille #7


Wishes in a Pocket

I have a charm in my coat pocket —
I play it like a game. An old coin
with a cross one side and a queen’s head,
a bolt-head smoother than my luck,
but I am happy for a twist of time
to intercede.



Written for dVerse Poets: Quadrille (44 words) . This is part of a poem written for the Found Poetry Review using translation method and replacing some words with the “sounds-like” phrases. The original source poem is written by F O’Hara “Lunch Poems”

  1. That’s a lovely charm…and yes to the twist of time
    to intercede.

  3. This is beautiful…


  4. A twist in time … love it! I call it the slipstream.

  7. This reminds me of when we did Erasure Poetry at dVerse some time ago…a type of Found poetry I believe. It’s quite an interesting style and I think yours is delightful, Misky.
