Featured Guest Poem on Flashlight City Blues, Poetry by Brice Maiurro

Standard

Shoshana,

Congratulations! You won! I have posted a blog entry congratulating you, and your poem has been added to the Featured Guest Poem tab of my blog. I would love to put up a picture of you, if you’d like, and a short bio. Would you send me something to that effect?
i.e. “Shoshana was born… Shoshana began writing… etc.
Whatever you’d like to say, really!
I received dozens of entry, so really, congratulations. I am glad to feature your wonderful poem.
Sincerely,
Brice

There is currently a problem with the link so for now I will in the meantime attach the poem as was featured on the site here:

“Ants”

Daddy told me once to be careful
He said, I might get stepped on
like an ant
It won’t be on purpose
just at the wrong place
at the wrong time
Since that day
(it must have been years ago by now)
I think of Daddy
every time I see ants
And I try not to step on them
I skip over their trails at the bottom
of the stairs outside my building
I even go out of my way not
to step on them
even when they have infiltrated
my kitchen and have begun to
have their way with the crumbs
at my kitchen table
I stare at them wondering
was it really me…
or him
Who is the ant here?
I carefully scoop them up and
drop them into
Insectopia

Out of dozens of entries into the first ever Rant Poetry Competition, where poets competed to write a poem somehow involving a theme, this time “Ants,” Shoshana’s poem crushed (pun slightly intended the competition) with 39 votes. You can see much more of Shoshana’s incredible writing on her blog:http://www.shoshanasarah.com
