Loop De Loop

Seriously? Loop poetry AGAIN? Anyone else feel like we’re running around in circles? *badum tish*

Le sigh…fine. Here you go. I’m not doing it again.

A Little Tongue in Cheek

By Jesi Scott


What can I do?

Do what I must.

Must I really write this,

this loop poetry I distrust?


They gave me an out,

out throw a line,

skip one in between

between verses, but I decline.


Make it harder, bring it on,

On throughout the day,

Day grows longer.

Longer lines? No way.


It reminds me of a Blitz somehow,

Somehow I’m still rhyming,

Rhyming the day away,

Away, because off is my timing.


And so I think I’ll go now,

Now that this is done,

Done like dinn-ah,

Dinn-ah think this loop poetry is fun.

Jesi Scott is an aspiring writer of novels, a poet, and blogger. She has guest-blogged over at The Well-Tempered Bards, and has a post featured at For Love Of…. Jesi has two poems published in Memories of Mist, a literary anthology, and one published story in a newsletter. She is currently working on releasing her first poetry collection as well as writing her first novel. When not writing, Jesi can be found getting lost in bookstores, singing and dancing around the house, experiencing culture with friends, and generally having fun with her four sons when they aren’t driving her weeping into her closet, which she calls her Padded Cell. She loves to rescue stray bookmarks, as well as books, and has opened her heart to any and all stories needing a home. Archery is her current favorite thing ever but you might want to stand back a little as she still has a tendency to drop the bow occasionally.
