She Only Had A Brain

Kathryn is that person everyone talks about
they say it's the quiet ones you have to watch
and Kathryn is a very quiet closed up person
a practicing artist of the macabre
taking us into the deep dark places
where leading the brain takes on a whole new meaning

a killer with a heart of gold
strong through her gentleness
here in mind but not in body
people wonder if she is lonely without the human form
this may explain why she is having a little trouble sleeping
and is still working on descending the stairs
for wouldn't you, if you only had a brain

Linking up with dVerse where we were given the task of creating a list poem based on Googlisms of a phrase or word.


  1. It's always the quiet ones we have to watch out for ~

    Interesting verses with that googlism - I still have to write about my name smiles ~

  2. ha. a killer with the heart of gold...and no body...i guess it is okay i am a bit scared of you now....smiles...think i will hide here at the bottom of the stairs if it takes that long for you to descend them...smiles.

  3. Love it! What a clever & fun way to write a poem

  4. super.

    says this woman of few words!

  5. I love it, so very clever...had to read it a couple of times to absorb it!

  6. Very interesting verse form! You are really stretching yourself.

    1. Thanks Brenda . . . it's fun to try new things.

  7. Beautifully and powerfully written!

  8. I enjoyed how you played with what googlism came up with for your name. "a killer with a heart of gold" - now we are warned!

    1. He, he, he. Googlism comes up with some pretty funny stuff.
