'Poetic Pizza' Pieces For PoemHunter Pals....[Fantasy Poem/Pizza Creation; Personal]


Kanav Justa suggested I share my pizza with PoemHunter friends,
but I’ve found, when trying to send real pizza, my wife’s computer bends.
So you PoemHunter friends will have to settle for.... slices of my thoughts.
You’ll have to settle for “Poetic Pizza” Pieces my mind and pen have wrought.

Instead of dough for its foundation, I use what I see and hear and think.
Instead of an oven for baking, I bake on notebook pages (or paper scraps) with ink.

Instead of tomato or pesto sauce I spread a layer of imagination and/or knowledge.
“Pizza” is one of the few things I feel I can make well, and I need not...... to have gone to college.

Instead of cheese I at times use insight, advice, and/or humor; rarely it is sleazy.
Valsa George enjoys a taste of my “humour”, though some of it.... may be cheesy.

Instead of extra toppings of peppers, mushrooms, fish or meat,
I sprinkle most of my slices with yummy rhymes, making them..... so 'right' to eat.

My “pizza” and “slices” come in three sizes: Large, Medium, and Small.
I have an appetite for Extra-large myself, but I wish to please you all.

I hope you find some “Poetic Pizza” pieces that you like,...... none TOO HOT, nor TOO COLD,
and if any of you diners have complaints, PLEASE let me know it. BE BOLD!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

i have named two of my ph friends. my ph photo shows me eating a slice of pizza. i put marks around the word 'right' because i was taught that 'right' means the opposite of 'left', but the word has come to be used (by me as well) instead of the word 'correct'. of course right and left also have political meanings as well 'these days'. i purposely use two spellings for the word(s) humor/humour in order to humor everyone, whether they speak the 'king's english' or the CORRECT ENGLISH language! bon appetite! ! :)

    This pizza was baked in November 2013, but it is still fresh because you preserved it in the spice of your humour... involving, addressing, mentioning the pH friends shows the good bond! Good poem is composed as an assignment! (Report) Reply

    When I saw this title, I HAD to click on it - the notion of Poetic Pizza is simply too delicious to pass by without a sample at least. But I consumed, or rather read the whole extended metaphor and it's a wonderful mix of pizza details and actual aspects of the writing process. It's amazing to me how you sustained the metaphor and kept coming up with new developments line after line. When I taught Composition and Creative Writing in a high school Humanities Program, I used ideas of a wonderful writer on writing, Peter Elbow. In his book WRITING WITH POWER he used a key analogy in chapter after chapter, namely, Writing and Cooking! ! It's true, he called the process of writing COOKING. He'd love your poem, too!

    Yes please, I'll have a slice with metaphysical olives and anchovies and similes to please, but sharing with the whole world brings greatest sated flavour and satisfaction to this read. (Report) Reply

    Haha.... that was hell of a poem... having the slices of your thoughts is way better than having the real pizza...
    Never thought you would write a poem on this... i mean i thought it would be hard to write on that... but bri we know is talented enough... wonderful write bri.. loved it... will give you even more complex topic to write on in future: p (Report) Reply

    First of all I enjoy Pizza and hamburgers more than many other fast food. Bri has made here a wonderful pizza for all of us poem hunter friends, though the great chunk of it is going to be gulped down by the greedy host himself! Let us excuse him as it is his privilege! {though courtesy is very much againt it) Yes, when it is flavoured with humour(humor) it will taste yummy and delectable!

    What ever your claims may be, we respect the King's English more! ! (Report) Reply

    the use of the words 'sleazy' and 'cheesy' is done mostly for rhyming and some for humor/humour. i did satisfy myself that there is some definition for each word that makes sense to me here. notice the very similar sound of the two words despite the quite different spellings. :) (Report) Reply
