This blog is a collecting ground of the poetry written by Kerry Mohnike. She does not believe that this poetry is particularly good nor particularly interesting to anyone. It is composed only to help her relieve stress. Feel free to comment or share your own writing. Although I am a veteran English teacher, I do not intend this to be academic in any way. In fact, for the purposes of these entries, I wish I weren’t an English teacher.
Football, great American metaphor
for fractured families and fallen heroes
toss the ball and toss the marriage
toss the feelings that what matters
does not matter to them. Have some
salsa with those insults, toss the ball
ignore the hurt. Doing what she does
best, “sitting on your ass.” Don’t forget
you’re the man.
