Am I Really Bad? (after reading about America’s new poet laureate) 6.14.2014

Am I Really Bad?

(after reading about Charles Wright –

named America’s Poet laureate two days ago)

 

Am I really bad?

Unhoned?

Because I feel the beat

Up to my

skull-boned

Head,

Use pronoun I

When I is definitely out? I try

To skimp on adjectives,

Shave words

To not disturb

A decent verb.

But there are buts and ands

And linking cons-

That juncture –itises:

An irritation to all poets.

Still,

I feel as if it’s good;

Some of it good,

Say, out of ten there’s one –

But certainly not none!

Am I bad without the really?

It was just the other day I thought a genie came to live with me.

It’s ok,

You can say it like it is!

I can take it.
