Unconvincing Charade by Sofia Kioroglou

Unconvincing Charade

I am not prancing around
Pretending to be a reputable poetess
Pretensions not my cup of tea

The Muses and Mnemosyne
Sometimes defy my invocations
To come save me from the writer’s abyss

My inspiration, a stranded heron wading
through the mess to get to where it should
be going, has lost its compass
