what you like / what it is

*****

street verse
faces without makeup
women in blue jeans
timeliness
simplicity
service

and that’s
perfectly
okay

until you start calling

sonnets worthless
makeup immoral
dresses vain and useless
dreamers irresponsibly tardy
visionaries irresponsibly early
all intricacy undesirable
and the only kind of acceptable service
that which you yourself provide
to your fellow man

never mistake
personal preference

for right and wrong

Among us, poets are not paid. The poet/editor of this website, being physically disabled, lives at a fraction of her nation’s poverty level. Become a patron of the fine arts at: https://www.gofundme.com/are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
