    auto da fe

    they come, they go:
    ages since Ford
    and Edison
    the hallowed mass
    of light and gas
    has made the glow
    across the board
    now seen in heaven

    they sell, they trade

    Hello. I was right, a few days in, to realise with sinking heart that there were going to be too many good entries...

    There was Moonbird's 'Black Hole', an infinity of nothing, with all the...

    Hmmm. Some of you have posted comments which might (fortunately or unfortunately) be mistaken for entries, being pretty minimalist themselves. So sorry, but could you please let me know (especially...

    Argus

    In a cage of eyes
    I stand entrapped
    Taken by surprise
    Am all enrapt

    My eyes look at me
    Beauty around
    And all that they see
    By radiance crowned

    I've noticed that our 'minimalist' poems are getting less and less minimalist. I am appalled that I just wrote a sonnet and passed it off as minimalist, which it clearly is...

    Surgery

    No rose-red cities nor the mighty ships
    Just sudden darkness and distant poundings
    An itch I couldn't scratch and silent lips
    Slack and still set soft in my surroundings

    They went all armed...

    Anniversary

    Anniversary will do for me
    I am eclectic

    Will go for any rhyme scheme
    Gloss, literary flourish
    A sucker for metric potency
    Or low-hanging punnets

    Annually cryptic
    Anniversary will do for me

    "Brains! Brains!"

    There once was a zombie with brains:
    His angst that sad fact quite explains.
    Whilst his peers hunted head
    He lay sulking in bed
    Upset at their mindless refrains.

    Secret Piles

    They lived together
    Their cottage was small
    You wouldn't think there
    Was a cottage at all

    There came quite a storm
    It flattened the trees
    But their house stood firm
    With greatest of ease

    Yes, it is. "Played the students chess" is correct but considered awkward in most standard forms of prose English. However, it is poetry we are considering here. I'd like to add that this order is in...

    Sigh. Could we take the grammatical parsing etc out of this thread?

    We wondered why
    the Milky Way

    Deja Vu

    Yet for all the world still turning
