Body Parts: Another Cliché Poem
I must have too much time on my hands! Here is another cliché poem:
The First Calendar?
This is my reaction to recent reports about a Paleolithic proto-writing system. It is a prolegomena to a short story I might write in my “First” series.

Cliché Corner- To Coin a Phrase
[A month ago, when I was writing the silly poem, “Has-Beens”—which contains the phrases “old hat” and “yesterday’s news”—I started thinking about clichés. That’s it! I’ll write a poem entirely out of clichés! As original as I thought this idea was, alas, “there is nothing new under the sun.” In a recent Poets and Storytellers United blog, Magaly Guerrero had posted a contest for readers to turn clichés into poems (Magaly Guerrero, “Weekly Scribblings #6: Turn Cliché into Poetry or Prose,” Poets and Storytellers United, Wednesday, February 12, 2020.

Reflections on Reflections
