Poco a poco Following a fallow writing period, Ideas are now raining down on my head rat-a-tat, rat-a-tat, poco a poco Like machine gun In Sectional variations Monophonic in texture Pen scribbling with staccato accuracy Trailing its nib in highfalutin octaves Hither and thither, to and fro and all over the place With terraced dynamics… Continue reading https://www.outlawpoetry.com/poco-a-poco-by-sofia-kioroglou/
It takes two to tango
and two to foxtrot
so woo me smoothly
like Harry Fox
but don’t you dare
step on my toe
You know what they say-

“The great leveler” by Sofia Kioroglou
No shock, no engulfment…
Just the natural corollary to physical birth.
Death is standing on your porch screaming out
and beckoning you to come downstairs.
Unbudgeable and unbribeable.

Your name no longer written in it.
The great leveller not paid for favors
is riding triumphantly his chariot
The dead, the great and small
now standing before the Throne.

"Confidence tricksters"by Sofia Kioroglou Vainglorious fanfaronade a detestable compound of vulgarity and rodomontade Odiously Pecksniffian aggressively monopolizing virtue overbearing prats and their cortège Appropriating power, grinding down legitimate holders enacting laws, those timeserving opportunists those holier-than-thou confidence tricksters https://www.outlawpoetry.com/confidence-tricksters-by-sofia-kioroglou/
