Just some object verse

 I am a Pritt Stick (tm)


I love your hand.

The way it encloses,

and folds, it's perfect.

Designed, it seems

for my purpose.



I am a plastic keyring


Pride in my own ability

to hold and to keep.

Acceptance of my

constant, buffetted

and pocketed life.  



I am a rug


Supporting all kinds

of step. No judge

am I. A blithe, simple,

soft yet textured

reminder of your floor.


◄ Another third person relationship poem; as yet untitled

More Mammy Wata, hopefully better now. ►

Actually, I think 'buffetted can have two 't's as the the accent is on the first syllable, like 'formatted'; very English/UK it is as I learned it.

'object' as opposed to 'objective'? :)

Oops, yes you're right Ray. Thanks for pointing it out, I'm normally such a stickler for spelling!

I spent all of 30 seconds pondering some deeper meaning. But I suspect that it is what it is. Which is nice enough.
I messed about with the plastic keyring:
Proud of my own ability
to hold and to keep.
Accepting my constant
pocketed, yet
buffeted life.

One t in buffeted.
