Not Poetry

This is not poetry.
This is not a poem.
This is merely
a collection of words

with

miscellaneous and random line
breaks.

There are no witticisms
or
wry observations
or
sappy emotions
that might make you barf
or cry
or do whatever you do
when confronted with an emotion you don’t want to deal with.

There is no introspection
or
funky misspellings
because I can
because I can’t
because I am not a poet
and this is
not
poetry
and I must pretend to obey
the laws of spell check.

This is not a comment
upon society
upon poets
upon writers
upon neighbors
upon politics
upon religion
upon foreign policy
upon smart people
or
stupid people
or
people who are uncertain of how to spell “potato.”

I am not a poet.
This is not a poem.
There is no rhyme
nor reason
nor motivation.

This is merely
a collection of words
with
miscellaneous and
random line

breaks.
