What’s Poetry To Me?

What’s poetry to me
Within myself I need to see
It’s a flow of words
Like the tweet of birds

It’s a way to express
Something you don’t want to suppress
It’s a personal affair
Revealed to the world in bare

It’s a way to talk
Like a lion’s majestic walk
Not just talk but more
Having an impact like its roar

It’s not mere lines
But the words and it’s science
It can be a rhyme
Written in your own sweet time

It can be a never ending art
Until the best stops in the heart
The lub-dub of it is a rhyme
And so are these lines of mine

Yukon Call Me Panic ode

Vane glorious and absolutistic, though I defiantly, cavalierly, and blithely attest Yukon bet your (laugh-in) sweet bippy mine acidic breast houses anarchic, anti-poetic ballistic, barbaric, and bubonic cannibalistic demons within thy safely guarded Pandora chest atomic cesium clock timed to

The Orchestra And Me

The Orchestra And Me prose poem

I had a dream last night. It was very concise but interesting. Rather revelatory, but not prophetic in the usual way. There was a class with a facilitator encouraging input based on a lesson plan provided to the class. I,
