I’m writing a poem-a-day for “NaPoWriMo” in celebration of National Poetry Writing Month. “Vegeteletons” is poem #5, 4/5/2013. For this one, I responded to NaPoWrimo central’s challenge to create an American Cinquain — a poem with a 2-4-6-8-2 syllable-per-line structure.

If you like very short poems like these, take a look at my recent book, The Gorelets Omnibus, a hardcover treasury of my horror poems over the past decade from Raw Dog Screaming Press, now also available in Kindle and Nook ebook editions.
