How Does This Poem Look On The Screen?

By No Comments1 min read

don’t call it poetry

how does it look
on the screen?

how does it sound
when spoken?

does it paint
images

or just philosophical
rambling?

does it contain
the doing words?

does it show
not tell?

is it haiku
or quantrain

or has no form
at all?

he said
creative writing

beats the hell
out of creativity

teaching people
how to write…

i prefer
Ezra Pound

he spurted
to students bemused

sitting down
in the theatre

about to absorb
a lecture

on
publishing rights.
