Sparkling soda fizz

Today, an essay,
on how well I can relay
these words into a jam
a self exam
I do this for me
of poetry
or not
It’s all I got
to keep it true
an attempt to woo
because I loved you
to not cram
an hour before
this slam
golden grams
of poetry, I am
not a whiz,
just sparkling soda fizz
right now at least
so feast
your ears
on the gears of Kim
where words bounce
off the rim
of my lips to yours
each one scores
and settles in your mind
down your spine
as words do
lighter than any
running shoe

I recieved a request from “Kim,” for poem ideas for a poetry slam that would also make use of props. So I wrote this poem and suggested that Kim compliment it by having an unopened soda and at the “just sparkling soda fizz” part, open the soda can and hold to mic. Basketball and running shoes optional.
