Preface To A Parallel World

A hoot!

Written for:  Poetics Aside November 2017 Chapbook Challenge – Day 23
Write a preface poem.  “A preface is a super literary term as the term typically relates to books–usually as the opening statement or introductory remarks of a book. So I’m mildly surprised I haven’t used this prompt previously. However, I think it’s perfect for the chapbook challenge, because poets who are writing to a theme have an opportunity to write a poetic preface. Of course, stand alone preface poems are just as interesting.”

A Parody of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow”

Somewhere out in a meadow
all birds speak.
If you look in the hedgerow
you’ll see beaks.

Somewhere out in a meadow
pigs read books,
and they write manifestos–
cannot go by looks.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
