20 February: SOCS Prefix

A.I. Artwork in the style of kay nielsen, gouache, watercolour, pastel, ink. A beagle howling at the sky


A neighbour’s howling
spitting at the sky.

It’s a proboscis sound,
as if one’s skull
is harmonic.

But even a howling dog
has to wait
for a tree to come by.

Written for Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness using a word prefix “Pro”. I’m not sure if this is Stream of Consciousness, but this is what came out of my head. A.I.

  2. Anyone one who can throw “proboscis” into a verse wins my vote for wow of the day 🙂
