Creative Writing Workshop – Poetry – Free Verse


Featuring work by Carol McClenahan

The P-Word


Do NOT ever speak the P-word,
Garbled enunciation, mouth mumblings
Head hidden inside of a torn Paper bag
Personal Protection from self-destruction
Never utter, mutter nor write the P-word
Lips sealed, Potency trapped,
Self-image changing, enduring
Future fantasy shaping body and soul
Abnegate, fully renounce the P-word
A sham blindfold, cover one eye
Fingers in ears, deafen its sound
Sincere counter intention will surely manifest
Deny the P-word its Power
Steal dignity from its existence
Live in your dream world, refuse to acknowledge
Make your own Reality the truth of this life
