Today’s email from Associated Content said that Jack Huber had published an article on the poetic form: rictameter. So I sat here and poked at words for a bit and came up with:

oil spill
seeping, bleeding
from below the surface
poisonous plumes permeating
the water, the marshes, the animals,
beaches, bayous, breeding grounds all
suffocating beneath
thick orange sludge
oil spill
