Subquishable wants to know where did you go; your background and foreground; lay of the line. Keep it personal, submittable, short and divine, but the words aren’t right because some have already been taken, so touché to cliche! Use them anyway. If structure is not your master, remember Cummings put a letter anywhere. When punctuation creeps into the fray, there is no rule that wants to stay. Hang those commas in the air; see them everywhere. Use the Dickinson dash without remorse. Watch out for song and rhyme because it just might make a poem subquishable.
dVerse prompt on prosery combined with a line from Mary Oliver. This prose poem is definitely subquishable.
Notorious inmates Birdman born in Seattle Murder incarceration Solitary confinement He studied canaries Caged like them in his small cell He let them fly freely Like his mind behind bars Never released

Notorious inmate Birdman born in Seattle Murder in Alaska
Incarceration Solitary confinement He studied canaries
Caged in his small cell He let them fly freely Like his mind behind bars
dVerse prompt to edit a poem with concern for noun and verb; adjective and adverb. This was a spontaneous poem written on a postcard during August Postcard Poetry Festival.
Beach hikes are the best because there is no elevation. I can walk for miles, barefooted, sand between my toes and shells strewn along the way. Waves repeating melody cancels the cares of the world, healing power of sound and saltwater.
Except in some beaches of Portugal where the hike to the small beach among rugged cliffs is near impossible. A road leads down, the surf pounds and beware of being pulled under.
In Crete the road winds along sharp curves, narrow, sometimes one lane, for miles going down until finally, there is an expanse of beach, pink sand and clear water.
