A Little Less Into It


The problem with young poets
Is that they’re much too earnest.
They emote so gushily, you gag,
But with age, they learnest.

Note:  If I could, I’d record these short poems and put the audio up here, because they have a sort of timing that is a challenge to convey.  Then again…if I was trying to write good poetry, I’d try harder to meet that challenge, I suppose.
