Mindlovemiserysmenagerie gives us a beautiful wordle, asking us to use 10 of these heterogeneous words: Tweak 2. Cloy 3. Jeans 4. Browse 5. Reverse 6. Pewter 7. Nozzle 8 Bedraggled 9. Stria 10. Truculent 11. Knuckles 12. Slack
My muse is slacking, my skill is in reverse.
Truculently I slam the keyboard, pound out words,
browse them in despair.
The bedraggled poem drags its knuckles on the floor,
is tweaked viciously to no avail.
I browse the thesaurus,
turn the nozzle of focus hither and yon.
Striated lines pile up higgledy piggledy,
are re-arranged until they make no sense.
The poem escapes my grasp
