  • After careful consideration on the set rules for today's edition of MONDAY PICTURE THEORY, an alteration was made, especially on the SECOND RULE which until now read's thus:

    'All poems must be 15 lines each'.

    However, prior to necessary amendments made, the second rule now read's thus:

    'All poems must be less than 15 lines each'.

  • And in my dream was a bull skull,

    Of which was to be handed to me,

    She asked that I take it by the horn,

    But I was scared to take this dark path.


    I realized that she was a sister to death,

    And my life was the price to pay,

    But if I grab this horn and lose my life,

    What then is the use of this cross over...


    From twenty twenty

    To twenty twenty one.

  • If I saw a bull's skull in my dream

    I would proooobably be terrified 

    I would ask myself why. Why. Why. 

    Why was I lingering in the forest 

    in the first place? Why is it all so 

    Cold all of a sudden and I can't 

    feel the weight of my legs. Why

    can't I find my voice like the lost

    spoons in the kitchen. Why do I have 

    to be the pin that passes through 

    the bull's eye from 2020 to 2021

  • First, I would forget it had two horns

    Run swiftly to embrace the next being

    Feel the weight of what is in front

    Then, grab it by its horns

    Stare at it a little bit more

    And watch a skull crack from fear

    I would be the skull to make it scurry.

    I lied.

    I would wake up- thinking of how many twenties one has lived.

    Cross boldly to a new dawn

    Do more, good deeds 

    Like eating chickens, chips and peas

    Patting my shoulders to embrace the new twenty-one.
