To Sarah Kay
I hear you perform what you call a poem.
It’s like a swig of moonshine—watered down,
half-fermented, but heady enough to make
the world swing in unforeseen directions.
When drunk with plenteous gulps of hooch,
you blow your words with a trumpet made of brass.
The latter-day Pied Piper, you take us
to ridges of senseless, rhythmless, rhymeless verse.
As if in a trance, we follow you, your voice;
a herald mediocre, your uninspired,
unmelodious scribbles cry in anguish.
Despairing prose, your feeble Howling makes
my cat purr in fright. Oh, meter! Oh, me!
Spare me your wailing of iPhone poetry!
