“Para la Tia a Que Adoro”
When thinking of a poem to write for B
The bee I fear is buzzing in my bonnet.
At least one detail is nailed down for me.
The structure must, of course, be of a sonnet.
I do not have her writer’s eye or ear
For poetry or Wigglebottom’s barkin’.
So should I write a poem like Will Shakespeare,
Or maybe one a little more Petrarchan?
What do I know from trochees and iambs?
My gift is not for consonants and vowels.
B’s posts would win in Eminem’s rap slams.
I write about my poodle and my bowels.
The couplet’s come, so please try not to heckle.
I’d give my eye to see that famous freckle.
