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.

A sort of mechanical analysis that works for me Tommy; it is strangely satisfying and I think written with tongue in cheek. Good enough for me!
