144 Character Poems: Set 2

Typewriting gone awry.
Typewriting gone awry.

A Slender Man

He is so slender,

like the lengthening

Spring days.

Thin as the shadows,

glowing like the sun.

Let’s see how we

can make him break.

Air Dried

Dirty water cleans

our clothes constantly

assaulted by wind,

dust, and earth,

drying snaky river

beds into our creases,

seemingly impossible

to remove.

Composed 03/24/14


We all thought the

author was typing

a period, starting

anew, hearing the

platen click,

but we realized

too late it was

only a comma.

Composed 05/24/14
