"Spelling Bee - A Girl's Linguistic Journey"
 
Visual poem, 2012
 

First tap wack  snap  air and papalapap.

Papi mein. Noapte buna Kindlein.  3 Lei Stück.
Lorelei. Polyphonic Hollywood nearby.
Moa??-ta pe ghea?? and heaveho.
El burrito  sabanero
Tuqui trucki  lapte  la copil
De Temesvar ins exil.
Cantando Silvio porque en seguida
Lo hermoso nos cuesta la vida. 
Y como el  gato  en  la obscuridad
Baje del cielo a la nueva verdad.
Honigkuchenpferd, kunterbunt, und Graben
Fressen Ihn im Schlarafenland die Raben. 
“My Pony” lies over the ocean
With the thapatistas, !ay que cuh! and supamen(g). 
Spelling bees test madeup words
Like marvalus, nees, and arkansaw,
But Ishmaels spleen, Jane, and Waugh
Unlock ephemeral - defluvium – peregrine; 
Goethean Petals ere Frost unseen. 
Thus seraphim, Heliotrope, and chrysalis
Save with a Hermeneutic kiss and elegance
Our 3 Lei tot from complacencys Garrote
Polishing this pariah into a blissful Groschen
Endlich in possession de su goschen.
 
more coming soon...
