No Trespassing

I'm fixing a hole
In the floor of my house
To keep out the rat
And keep out the mouse.
I want it all sealed,
An impregnable fort
So all their attacks
Will fall down quite short.

I love the poetry, what kind would you call your poems because i think it falls under the style of imagist.

Hmm, I don't really know. I'm not too familiar with the names of particular styles.

imagist is all about visual description of a small picture. i really hope you write your worke down in a notebook because it would be great if it could be published, its like modern limerick that is clean and makes a point just about life from day to day.

SM,

Thanks for the explanation. I guess one of the things that I think about when writing poems, or at least it's something that makes writing them easier, is driving at something specific. Or like you say, an image. When I try to say something important or poetic, it ends up very general and pretty darn lame.
