Poeming: SEVENLING (the smooth surface)

Over at Poetic Asides, the poem of the day was to be a "Sevenling." Now, while i think a "sevenling" sounds more like a Tolkein creature, it is in actuality a poem form made up of 2 tercets (yeh, i didn't know what they were either) and the third stanza is a stand-alone line that can be a punch-line or a twist of some kind. Here is my bit of Sevenling Wisdom for the day.

SEVENLING (the smooth surface)

the smooth surface sluggishly breaks
apart, a jagged line appearing.

a crevice is born.

slowly, leisurely, the crack widens
accepting the now flowing
external ooze.

two rounded cake sides should not be put together.

And that's all i have to say about that.
