The Unpoem


All the unripe notions are unmentioned herein.

Each self-referential fancy is avoided.

Every conceivable algorithm of composition ignored.

Any generative structures or formulaic techniques?

Eschewed or abandoned.


Naked words will be joined like empty boxcars

to preclude sly spaces that may aspire to be pregnant pauses.

A labyrinth of misdirection will tangle style and content

frustrating comprehension while beguiling the parched imagination

to perceive opaque profundities within.
