Simple expositions

entry picture

 

Poetry is tested-
 
no line remains un-touched;
 
we smile at our fingered collections
 
of  verbs
 
and inflections,
 
of all the sorted conjunctions- 
 
all
 
the wrought phrases-
 
the throw-away rhymes
 
and
 
those simple expositions
 
that torch our lighted way
 
through those caverned wordy
 
mines.

 

 words  TH Carroll

a nice observatory poem on the process. The single word lines are perfect and the sounds of 'simple exposition' and 'caverned wordy' are really interesting. nice one.
