Practice Poems #2 – Furious Puppetspeak

No idea if it’ll become a trend, but I like ending the week with a poem.

Let’s jump right into it.


There are places beyond the walls.

Rooms you’ve never seen, full of voices you’ve never heard.

They’re so close to being familiar.

Furious puppetspeak, rattling just across the street. Down the road.

Even if you tried, you couldn’t hear it.

You probably never will.


Just keeping it short and sweet this Friday.

Thank you again to everyone who’s passed by this week! I hope you get to enjoy the weekend. I just got the promotion I applied for a few weeks ago, so you better believe I’m taking advantage of this last work-free weekend.

But, anyway, my name is Louis Santiago, and I’m a fantasy writer based in the Bronx. My short story, “Aixa the Hexcaster,” was recently published in Mirror Dance Fantasy. However, I’m still very much learning about the writing process–still trying to figure it out. Part of that means posting on here every weekday, even though I make absolutely no money from it. So, if you like what you read here and feel up to getting an email every weekday–a new post from me delivered right to your inbox–then please hit the Follow button at the bottom of this page. Because, even though all I get from this site is emotional support, that support means the world to me.

Either way, thank you just for dropping by. And, as always, write well.
