    Charming "minimalist poem"!

    Nihilist ogres
    pick quarrels,
    raving shamelessly,
    tiring ugly vermins
    wowing yonder X-zeniths!

    Much enjoyed its maxi minimalism!

    Things I love from A to N
    avocados
    books and berries
    cats, cats, cats
    Dell, dinners, dogs, Dumbo
    Elephants, elves, eating, earth
    Food, foxes, fluffiness, Firefox? fonts
    Gently grinning giraffes
    Hilarious hills,
    Iceland's icy islands
    Joy
    Kindness
    Master music
    Not having to go on with this list.

    A happy ending, eh!
    (B-H)
    Beautifully boasting boa constrictors
    calmly calculating calcified clichés
    deadly dandruffs!
    electing elusive Elenas
    fleeing from fire
    grandly grinding ghostly grins
    happily harassing buzzards!

    (lol) Ok, maybe ending wasn't appropriate.

    (B-H) Intense poem... praying L4 comes to fruition... poor buzzards.

    IV

    icicles melt and fall
    jostle all below

    keeping on
    lighting my fire

    my
    new
    overalls so cool -

    pristine

    quiescent
    roots
    stalk family
    trees
    unceasingly -

    vicarious

    Ai! Wondering why the name of your poem is IV?

    The return of the infinite

    Ancient
    blessings
    can
    dust
    evils and euros
    forever.
    Good
    hymns and hyacinths
    increase
    joy.
    Klutzy koalas
    largely
    mean
    no
    oops!

    re: IV... got lazy and left the hyphen out (I-V)

    Enjoyed your poem, especially: "Good / hymns and hyacinths / increase / joy"

    Lol! Got the feeling that my trickster enjambments were radicalized in the poem above!

    (A-X)

    Agitated
    bets
    cause
    dark
    enigmas
    forgetting
    gossip
    harassments
    idle
    jokes,
    laughing
    masterfully,
    noiselessly,
    openly,
    querulously,
    randomly.
    Successful
    tactics:
    unique
    veritable
    word
    x-rays!

    I like that "radicalized" - (lol).

    Sounds like a good day ?

    pity the elephant

    yesterday's
    zoo
    attractions
    begrudge
    circuses

    degrading
    elephants
    forgettable -
    gone -
    history

    Scintillating!

    naval
    opals and opportunities.
