What what what?

Poetry is a players



without shame

but guised in ways

to delight

or remove demure

to excite

or shout-proclaim

some deed or woe

or love


letting go

but my friend

here's the rub

with every simile

that we grub

to shock-offend

or lie outright

our words themselves

don't makes us


We are crafters

our words are tools

I love you all

and April fools.
