d’VerseQuadrille #143; Muse Cues

This week’s Quadrille host at d’Verse, the pub for poets, is De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo. A quadrille is d’Verse’s own creation, a 44 word poem exactly, excluding the title. The word today is Muse.

Jigging

My muse is a squid

and I’m just a kid 

jigging off the wharf

hooked line dropped into watery dark.

Unamused—

pumping ink out its ass

it’s a slippery flash 

challenging to hook and to land.

Lines lie slack, nothing to bring to hand.
