Sneaky subtitle

Scared shitless?

Silly sensationalism?

“Sure,” she says.

Superwoman-style seduces.

Supersonic strength sells.

Synthesizes sisters seldom sober,


Salvation-seeking smells so second-rate spawn.

Sadomasochistic screenwriters sold simplified self-awareness,

scheduled shenanigans/sordidness,

sacrilegious simulations straddling stormy seas



Stubborn sheep

Sometimes self-serving stupidity stifles stinkiness

Sotto voce suggestions summarize strategies.

Similar suckers syncopated.


Stick semicolons somewhere;

start shouting,




…survivor sans self-denial,


Savior-complex surgeon.

Scuffling scorpion.

Selective scorekeeper.

Starving sculptor.

Sanctimonious succubus.

Some secured secret.

Sweetest serenity

Sage sentinel.


Select something.





Shake superciliousness,

sluggishness surrounding structured strongholds.

A tautogram is a poem that has every word beginning with the same letter and it's a challenging form to master. This is my first one and I'm truly grateful for your indulgence in reading it, so I'm hearting YOU right now!

Kindest of thanks!
