(Read this one aloud, in slam style)


I need a poem.

I need to feed on bones of poems.

To seed strong reeds that groan like bones and sound like poems,

I need to lead the words that alone clone more poems.

I need a poem to seed, to grow.

I need a poem to read, to know.

Beyond fat groaning tomes I need the brevity of poems.

To be complete, to seek, to speak,

I need a poem.
