April PAD Challenge — Day Twenty-Six

April 26, 2015

prompt: use one or two words invented by Shakespeare as your title and write the poem

Premeditated Critic

Once, I caught you acting out
the argument we would have
you played my role so fluently
I could have played yours too, you know

We are nearly alike, you and I
two vines with one root
I climb trellises that wrap my shoots
You slither the ground to strangle

You don’t even wait for all the evidence
before your incessant nag nag nag begins
You are Xanthippe dousing my head
with the contents of your chamber pot

your premeditated criticism
severs any love that once flourished
