5 Short Poems

How short can a poem be and still be a poem?  Don't expect me to answer the question, but here are five short poems I wrote (to avoid confusion, the 'I' in these poems is fictional).  Got any short poems to share?


Then Time Arrived

They lie when they say time flies.

Time drives a motorcycle

And won’t pull over

For a speeding ticket.


The Last

Imagine the last car commercial.



The cake that sealed their wedding vows

They ate on their honeymoon

And they didn’t realize it

Until I was grown up

And gone.



Poured through globs of a paint-like substance;

I hurt.


An Instant

The instant left.

They tend to do that.

Too bad.

This was a nice one.

The End
