The Spoonbill Generator


Free verse is my favorite form and so I say to you, "Garbanzo" [Francine]

Your cheese obsession worries me, perhaps it is that time of year [Nym]

She sneered, "You silly boy, garbanzo is a bean. Now I know you are bourgeouis." [Francine]

Bean as in bean soup? [Nym]

"No," she shot back, "bean as in beanie" How Warhol, I thought [Francine]

I prefer berets myself, they sit nicely on my latin locks [Nym]

But apple butter also rings my chimes. [Karin]

And yet it looks so silly, dripping down my noble brow [Francine]

I suppose it must be my fate [Nym]
