Rock Star (Big Tent Poetry)

By Sarah Joncas
                the sound of her voice.
           her look,
                          in a sexy,
                                         polka dot kind of way.
     No one knew
she was a rock star,
not even her.

  1. Interesting layout, for an elegant poem.Thank you for visiting my blog – your first two comments were awaiting approval – usually happens to first-time visitors. The third was in the spambox.

  2. Really like the poem. How often we are unaware of just who and what we are. We spend a great deal of time waiting for someone to tell us,Elizabeth

  3. I like the ambiguity of this, how it leaves me wanting to know more about this woman. And the way the form subtly mirrors the illustration. Nice work.

  4. Love this. "polka dot kind of way." made me chuckle. Have to wonder about the future, if she will one day figure out her true nature: will the earth tremble? Excellent! 😀

  5. I really like the tone/voice of your poem and how it looks on the "page." The second stanza is my favorite, letting me see the narrator, too. (I like short poems a lot. And yours show why. It's all right there. Clear. Puts me smack dab in the middle of a surprise. 🙂 )
