Oh, such fun!
A play with words
Creative genius invents a new language
The machine indifferent to elegance and form
Words won’t dance—
Even to the breathing rhythm of people upstairs
for Poets United
note: The poem was inspired by Odgen Nash’s poem, The People Upstairs.
I know I moan about poets, who don’t seem eager to embrace the digital format. But in earnest, who wants to play with code when you can spending all that time writing instead.
Perhaps, poetry was meant to be sung and recited. What do you think, dear poets? Is it better to go busking on the streets, instead of trying to contain poetry in digital formats?
So, to answer Rommy…when words won’t dance, I take to the woods.
