English

what the hell
is free verse?

this is why
poetry is such
a sham.

how in hell
can charles fucking
bu-
kows-
ki
take a couple
of (run-on)
sentences,

put
one, two
or three words
per line and
call it
poetry?

even kasparov has to
go the full distance
of the board
every time
before he can turn
a pawn into
a queen.

beauty, i suppose,
is in the eye
of the beholder.

it's just that
some of us
have to go through
many more eyes
before someone

holds on.


This is me reading the first of my own here. An appropriate start, I think.
