Today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem in the style of Kay Ryan, whose poems tend to be short and snappy – with a lot of rhyme and soundplay. They also have a deceptive simplicity about them, like proverbs or aphorisms. Once you’ve read a few, you’ll see what I mean. Here’s her “Token Loss,” “Blue China Doorknob,” “Houdini,” and “Crustacean Island.” Happy Writing! – Maureen Thorson

Normally I would say I have a style of my own and wouldn’t want or need to copy someone else’s poetry style, but I will give it a go as I have not gone off prompt for 23 days – which is a record for me! 🤔😲🙂I will write it in free-style.

Grief creeps up on 
him like a thief in
the night. He crys
with great wrenching
sobs and real tears.
He holds the last
jumper she wore
before she died and
smells her perfume.
Chanel No 5 tickled
his nose as he
breathed it in, why
did it hurt so much?
His grief accounted
to how much he had
loved her, he knew
that was the truth.
