Favorite Quote:
"Why is it that we rejoice at a birth and cry at a funeral? It is because we are not the ones involved."
-Mark Twain, "Pudd'nHead Wilson"


Pell mell, Hell swells
Sell bells, bells sell
Yell, tell when, where, we, then
We’ll be
There

Peeled knees – freeze!
She sells shells, they free themselves.

Energy! Help! Cede energy, eck
Rep twelve every sec, then they'll settle.

Between we-then-them, meddle.
Hell swelters, then settles:
Severe


The author's comments:

 This piece was inspired by Cathy Hong Park's "Ballad in A" - my gateway to falling in love with all of her work. I followed the same rules as Cathy did by using chosing only one vowel to write with..."y" doesn't count.
