Vexing thesaurus

Forever is an ugly word

Inspiring, enticing, incorrigible
promise and implications immense
execution uncertain, incomplete

Forever is overly simplistic

hopeless realization intoxicates
a siren-like, self-coaxing impossibility
mocking, scornful of your naiveté

Forever is an ugly word

gracefully benign until practiced;
its only relationship to reality is its
ultimate, untimely, predictable demise

By poetluckerate

I am a poet, writer, and teacher who moved from Minnesota to New Orleans in 2008 then returned to Minnesota in 2018 - hopefully, to stay.

I lived in the most urban of settings, and the rural Midwest. These perspectives impact my writing in very unique ways.
