tredding in uncharted waters

Posted to Action Poetry

Madame, they said
It has come to our attention
that you are no ordinary poet

You toss out words
in peculiar unkempt manner
Hardly a 'the' to be seen
And worse
No rewrites

Would you please
step away from your computer
Walk a straight line...
Can you find the floor?
(mmmmm hmmmm)
Can you do this simple calculus equation?
(uh, huh)

Yes, we're going
to have to fine you
one thousand poems
to be placed in a conspicuous
for criticism

You will read each and every
critique four times
and correct your strange aberrations
