A Poem

I was thinking of the letter M last night and remembered a poem I wrote during my time living in Pennsylvania. At the time, I had established an alias for myself. The alias was not the motivation for the poem...the idea actually came from a children's poem that had been submitted to Highlights magazine. This poem was about how "mmm" was a thinking sound. It was a delightful poem (I had the chance to read so many delightful and meaningful poems written by children while I was working there) and got me thinking about "mmm". So here goes ...

The Letter “M” (aka Establishing My Alias)

By: ER(air)in BER(brrr)ger

So I’ll be Mercury Monday
and mmm like the sound
of happy mouth to happy
food mmm a real sound not
like “air” or “brrr” which are only parts
of sounds mmm a full cycle
a complete rotation of vibrating
lips together a guttural sound from
throat deeper from abdomen working
to air to ears
as we lay in bed mmm touching
sound pleasure sound mmm more
mmm mmm mmm like lyrics
to a wordless song mmm a thinking
sound a surmising sound mmm (a-ha)
a sound of revelation or relaxation
as I sit beside my love mmm
intertwining fingers mmm
taking deep breaths



  • Wow, VERY nice...I can't write poetry AT ALL...

  • Whoa. Is it hot in here? Why yes, it's hot. And steamy. Jezzel, Bergie. I need to go take a cold shower now.
