I’m more an episode,
a past of tense;
sedated I am moribund,
too slight to fend myself from
grips of claws
and waves of nausea.
I’m just a passage
in your book,
the sidekick in a penny dreadful;
and even if, at night,
the sky’s stelliferous,
I cannot wish upon a star
or even hope
cause once I grip
my plasma physic reference
causality is clear:
you wish for fame,
big brothered famous
(not with me).
Linked to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle. I think I used all the words.

Amazing job with the Wordle, Bjorn! You weave a timeless and sad tale, of love un-meeting.
“a past of tense;”
I’m going to go read again for the third (and maybe fourth) time . . .
I am so happy to see you at the Wordle Björn!
You have done a masterful job with the words and with conveying emotions in a very palpable and realistic way.
Oh wow, Björn, that poem is stelliferous!
i am an episode, a passage…love that thought
What an amazing poem found amid the word pool. This carries your signature voice, your eye for the details of life in the second decade of the 21st century. I don’t know where all the art critics are, but they should be reading the blogs. This is where contemporary poetry is at.
Gosh, this is absolutely incredible writing, Bjorn 😀 sigh.. I wish I had written this!💝
Wow, Bjorn….quite a tapestry of words! Haven’t heard that word: stelliferous before. This poem is layered and packed. Interesting write.
Absolutely stunning words! You’ve woven them artistically, & your image is a perfect fit. I agree with the comment above that contemporary poetry = art! Thanks for sharing.
Wow this is amazing.Keep it up.I want to read it again and again. It feels like a flame is burning
stelliferous send me to the dictionary; Enjoyed this galactic soar and the melt down to flesh and bones
Ouch, the sidekick in a penny dreadful……you told a wonderfully woeful tale with the words.
Cleverly created! I haven’t done wordles myself for long, long time, and am fascinated to see how it alters your style (though not your voice). ‘Oh, Bjorn’s doing something new here,’ I thought, before I realised what it was. Always great to find ways to expand our range!
A past of tense! So clever, that made me chuckle. I think I’m a present of tense as well. Also, there are some penny dreadful sidekicks I wouldn’t mind portraying. 🙂
“I’m more an episode,
a past of tense;”
Ouch Björn, that opening struck a memory. Nice use of the wordle.
That’s some creative work – I flipped over to look at the challenge! Wow. We should try this at Toads 🙂
