I’m not sure anyone should write poetry about writing poetry
It seems very self-indulgent
But I just realized
That my poetry is the same as my prose
For line breaks.
To write a poem
All I have to do is chop up ordinary sentences
Because see, I have a short attention span anyway
And a whole paragraph makes me nervous with its
So instead I adopt a porous style with
Lots of white showing through
A colander, not a stew pot
As it were
And call myself a poet.
