As Ricky Ricardo used to say, "Lucy, you got some 'splaining to do." Smile. We find character in everything, animate or inanimate; why not in the word itself. We profess to be wordsmiths after all; nice job with the prompt; like it.

I love this non-narrative approach to developing a character...I am partial to poetry that engages the reader in such an imaginative way.

Interesting. I must say I was a bit thrown off by your "J for dverse" line because some of your words can be seen as a description of the letter "J". Hope you'll delve into this poem for us.

The "surrounded by vowels" stills makes me think --after three reads. I tend to think of women surrounding a man (not al lover) just a man.

Interesting piece...think I need another clue though. :-)

hi vb
sorry i put the j there because it is about a j and i was worried it was too vague

Lynndiane said...

interesting take on a literal "character"...could be any consonant trying to anchor those vowels down :)

tight verse...I like the last line.
