Imperfect metaphors

Yesterday has capsized

Today is the tip of the iceberg

Tomorrow will launch a thousand ships

You’re not the Titanic.

    • Thank you, Bee! I’m having fun with the short form of my poetry. Sometimes I feel like I am drowning in words and forget to do more with less. Plus, Twitter is forcing me to condense my thoughts in 140 characters, including spaces! Hope you are having a wonderful, relaxing weekend, my friend! It’s 90 degrees here and officially the first summertime heat streak. Is it sunny and warm where you are?
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂
