Three Poems Using Free Association Words

Bitchy cat,
hell-bent on biting me,
were you a pussywillow,
I might try petting you.

Words selected from the first list in this post.


Steve wears curly hair,
a blond cowlick and noxious,
nicotine smile,
defective in every way.
Only in underwear,
he stands, a comic
puppet, wet with
my ignorant adoration.

Words selected from the second list in this post.


I lament my query
has brought me only
an opine from the editor:
Crumble your manuscript.
Bring it back to the wetlands.
Tie it to a stone.
Drown it. 

Words selected from the third list in this post.
