Romancing The Serpent

Poetic depiction

prosaic description

Vowels come in colors

the rest black and white


They call to us orphaned

they call to us nameless

Our pens but a lifeline

that save with each write


To romance the serpent

to anger the saint

Each word symptomatic

our feelings acquaint


A bard or a preacher

their weapons the same

Whose caliber loaded

—to praise or defame


(Radnor Pennsylvania: June, 2022)
