One Long Poem

One Long Poem

 

It doesn’t matter what I write,

It’s one long poem.

Three thousand poems in fifty years

That sometimes rhyme and sometimes bomb.

One long poem; an Arlene there.

Searching thinkings, rational or sentimental;

Always verse, never prose –

Couplets almost never, ‘cause

They make a literate reader doze.

 

The beat inside, intrinsic, non-negotiable;

Always off the shoulder, meaning pivotal.

 

Communication always changing in its form,

Yet if one looks one sees a norm,

A dark red thread in love with words.

 

If I use the ‘I’ too much,

All I want’s to touch the inner you.

If I do, I do –

Pronouns notwithstanding.
