Fun with Words

This was an exercise from Ursula K. LeGuinn’s “Steering the Craft”. It’s called Being Gorgeous. The idea is to play around with sound, but don’t use rhyme or meter.


Slippery synthetic syncopated symbol swims sideways.  So sophisticated.  Such sophistry.  Serendipity sings silently in this surreal sojourn.

  4. It may be esoterically said that Roy stopped soy to estop the internalized estrogen that estranged him from his esteemed spouse.

    Maybe. Meandering at meals may make the man’s mind mushy as silly slithering sluts slink silently, slyly, slowly.

  5. Hey! Nice picture! Nice new look. 🙂
