‘Untitled’ by Ameerah Arjanee

Gray wall, fat cat yawns.
A blank way splays all days.
Flash a black flame, pack a mad rat
Tat Tat Tat

Ameerah Arjanee wrote the poem ‘Untitled’ in response to Ross Sutherland’s Univocal Challenge.

Ross Sutherland says: Great small poem. The poet uses the constraint to great effect here. A cat as a “black flame” is particularly evocative.

    Ace little experiment :) It has a kooky, dark nursery-rhyme feel about it, especially with the rat tat-tat-tat at the end.

    It’s a nice little poem but, the ‘e’ in ‘flame’ means it doesn’t count as a Univocal poem.

      Well spotted Hopi! It is a silent “e” though, so the poem sounds like a univocal poem, room to be indulgent I think.
