Remember stress is useful if and only if it’s in poetry

He writes  like an iron bic-ed amateur
He is ill,but literate
A new EU law says women must wear bikinis in Tesco’s or  wrestle with unarmed policemen in the Forum.Which do you prefer?
She is literate and beautifully formed
He’s reads swell in any  form
I never like to show off my sun  gnats.They bite the hand that wrote them
It’s the Sybillines that count
Make sure you do  writhe all day to start with
There’s no such thing as a poetic horse.
Remember stress is useful in poetry only
She has a very worried accent.
She asked me was I   very foreign.I said I was about  two standard abbreviations from the mean.And by golly,they are very mean
Don’t bother about Eugenie’s ass
If you can read and write you can  learn a lot of bad things and pass them on to cause more harm and sin

And yet my vision may deceive as guide

As heavy blankets hurt my tender joints
So bills unpaid weigh on my    flattened heart
And tasks I can’t complete  to  hell do point
And darkness does my soul  long time assault

Yet to the innocent who pass me by
These  black demonic ills are hard to see
And  though I trudge they seem to think I fly
While my heart sinks and soon no more will be.

What  being will caress my tender limbs
And soften muscles now as hard as steel?
What  human arm will drag me from the rim
Of well so deep its waters have congealed?

And yet  my vision may deceive  as guide
Blind fantasy sees mice  as lions wild.

It seems to speak

Her grief so palpable ,it seems to speak
Her  vocal chords once  soft are stiff and pained
Her  face   deep hurt,. her body taut yet  weak
Her grief so palpable , ah,  please,please   speak
Ill tempered men have   pleasured in her shrieks
Yet  when such   grief ‘s  been   tempered and refined
The  vocal cords might be   enjoyed again
Her grief so palpable  .  why  don’t we speak?
Her body  bends, we should have taken pains

The tension in the courtroom was palpable as the jury foreman stood to announce the verdict.

“The beautifully shot, meditative film takes on a palpable sense of urgency after Maria makes a fateful move, leaving both the young woman and her family in a quandary that forces them to deal with the outside world, including a harrowing trip to a hospital where no one understands their language.” — David Lewis, The San Francisco Chronicle, 26 Aug. 2016

Did You Know?

The word palpable has been used in English since the 14th century. It derives from the Latin word palpare, meaning “to stroke” or “to caress”—the same root that gives us the word  palpitation. The Latin verb is also a linguistic ancestor of the verb feel. Palpable can be used to describe things that can be felt through the skin, such as a person’s pulse, but even more frequently it is used in reference to things that cannot be touched but are still so easy to perceive that it is as though they could be touched—such as “a palpable tension in the air.”
