POPO2022 day 8 — fish of different sizes and colors

card 8 fish of many colors and sizes resized

upscale and haughty
with stiff upper lips and spines
polymorphous prigs

upscale and haughty
we pretentious of the sea
suspend in facade

with stiff lips and spines
we’re aquaculture’s ideal
freak fronts for the tail

polymorphous prigs
to small fry everywhere
smell our represent

    Fitting words for the card. Lovely art.
    I like postcards like these. I have a few (well too many)…
    But not enough folks to send them too…
    A great place to find packets (sometimes in thrift stores).
    I once found a booklet of PC’s some missing, but some had some postage on them!!

      Jules, thank you. Have you considered participating in the annual Poetry Postcard (POPO) Festival? I think you’d love it. Lucky find on the booklet!

        I’m not techy enough to take images and get them onto posts. Most of my images are from the net.

          Jules I post my images after the festival is over. No need for you to do it to participate in POPO. You sign up (I think it is $15 or $20 to register) and next summer, when it starts, you will be e-mailed a list with your name and address and 30 other participants’ names and addresses. The way it works is you write a poem on a postcard and send it to a person each day from the list. By the end of it you’ve sent 30 postcards, and ideally you will receive 30 postcards in the snail mail. Learn more here: https://ppf.cascadiapoeticslab.org/
