Daily Poem 16: Flummery

Her words dissolved: reduced to flummery entwined with steady strums

Of her four favourite chords, distracting me from showing any tact.


This play with internal rhyme is about falling in love with musicians.  If you’ve ever watched someone singing while playing a musical instrument and have, in that moment, been completely overwhelmed to the point that you’re not even listening to the words, you’ll understand.


\FLUHM-uh-ree\ , noun;

1. A name given to various sweet dishes made with milk, eggs, flour, etc.
2. Empty compliment; unsubstantial talk or writing; mumbo jumbo; nonsense.
