Video Wednesday: Bananas Pears Coffee Meat Milk & Rye

Bananas Pears
Coffee
Meat Milk
& Rye

Not all days but
More than most days
I despise poetry
the all too often
Transparency of poets’
Self-satisfied cleverness

Better silent
Than clever.

no amount of
Acrobatic syntax can
Un-cringe the cringed

Better silent
Than obscure

Your teacup on your tabletop
Is not a poem no matter
the Chantilly no
matter the puddle
of morning light

better silent
than mundane

Bananas pears
Coffee
Meat milk
& rye
Better a grocery list
Than a lie.
