You were telling her to go inside
And perfect the pork well water pie
She wrote recipes that end up white
Fermented in a saltwater brine
Each bit infused with Stowe Cider High
The screaming gal with the easy eye
Monorhyme is a poetic technique using the same rhyming sound on multiple lines.
I have decided to go with near rhymes for half of the lines because I struggle to find enough word variation within perfect rhymes. Also, I like the more subtle effect that you get with near rhymes. Perfect rhymes have a tendency to draw all of the attention to the sound of the end of the line and distract from the rest of the poem when I do it. Many very good poets can make perfect rhymes work, but I have just not developed that level of skill.
I wrote this poem in response to the Wea’ve Written Weekly prompt on Skeptics Kaddish.
