Doodling with words



I doodle on edge of the noodle.   
A flower wears power then snitches on the boy.
The boy walks on paper hat, itchy as a tart.   
Where the clouds slips, I also lip sing aloud.
Latin in Manhattan, English is ticklish, like licorice. 
Maybe I should be eating a strudel instead.
Or canoodling with the whole caboodle. 

Instead I doodle oodles of wiggly lines
Curvy lines, vines, pines and nines
In the center is the sea of peas
Rushing, thrashing, blushing blue
Suffocating the dark is a spark
Grass grows underneath my teeth
Wheat is whey, milk is silky
Playing with words is swaying with birds.

  1. Playing with words is swaying with birds.

    Great ending and great word craft. Some words seem strangely spectacular to bring mysterious structures into acceptance. Wonderful write Grace!

  6. You have written a nice collection of cubist lines. I love the first line, the one about Latin and the closing lines. And now I feel like having some nice apple strudel.

  7. You fully captured the nonsensical bent to the prompt, rocking the crap out of it. Your title is trey apt; liked the line /suffocating the dark is a spark/ Oddly for me, this form overlaps, shadows, apes Flarf, nonsense verse, & several other forms; all fun though.

  8. I had always thought English ticklish.. definitely licorice.. what a perfect way of playing with the sounds.. something to be read loud with those rhymes and gradual changes...

  22. oh, i love your wordplay: "English is ticklish, like licorice"--you know it! such wonderful fun, this, and the last line says it all. Thank you.

  23. There is meaning in each line beyond the metric and mechanics, it all comes together to form a whole picture of 3 dimensions to walk around and see the story told in each pane and then the connecting of each pane to hear the statement of the piece. Idling time away can have it's own benefits.

  25. Holy Cow! This is totally "cool." It has made me think of Shell Silverstein and also the "Madeline" books by Bemelsman. This was just jolly and wonderful. Also, your first line about "doodling on a noodle," made me think of those tomes written upon a grain of rice. ;)

  26. Made me think of the Mad Hatter and Caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland sitting down to tea with you. Great write.
