dante

i like recipes, in everything
even for a poem, i wish i knew
some widgets. some can feel
in the air what makes a good poem
and once dead their poems go on
like dante (he must have eaten
at gods' table.)
he said that no, he was
amongst the mice in the kitchen
when
some like shakespeare cleaned
their dishes and heard their godlike singings
how can it be possible to leave off a dream
like that?
because we, we have served the mice
at home
and poured the dishwasher a pint of
ale

rather to be a mice in the kitchen. You can eat anything you want. As long as you are sneaky, stealthy and quick. Kinda like a poem. A good one that is

It isn't that Shakespeare is overrated, or Dante underrated, rather they used different recipes. Right? Maybe?

I don't believe in recipes for poems, although it might work for some. I like the poems of those who were with the mice in the kitchen and who washed the dishes. That is where a person develops the feelings and emotions best expressed in poetry. Perhaps a little quality control/quality assurance might be called for. :) I always enjoy your thoughts, which I always seem to misinterpret.
