Wandering expositions

entry picture

Poetry has many inspections
each line remains re-touched;
we frown at fingered collections
of nouns and other stuff.
There are troublesome inflections,
and bleeding, wrung-out verbs-
the wandering expositions
of rhymes the metre serves.
There are stand alone conjunctions
in hope that it amazes
in solitude it functions
in contrived schematic phrases.

I can well imagine the pleasure in setting out this enjoyable exercise about writing poetry
- or anything else for that matter. Neat.
