Ode to Joel

Petrarchan Sonnet #1

They say that poetry isn’t work,
But they forgot the artist called Joel,
Who writes like a mole
Buried in words that lurk.
But don’t despair the murk.
It is a whole
Bowl
Of fun enough for a Turk.

So you say
That the might
Of words are eyes
That find a way
To blind your sight,
And free your ties.
