poetry is not always pretty

Standard

poetry is not always pretty

with posh little pots filled with posies

sometimes it ends up on your face

or bounds you tightly in leather and lace

you may seek out those precious things

that left without a trace

others want a shock to the brain

or something to titillate

I try not to try when I write on the fly

No purpose no plan no plate

poetry is not always fun to read

you skip over things you don’t like

preferring a murmuring brook with a fawn

but you might be surprised at what you might find

beyond the garden gate

poetry has a noble purpose

but I don’t care about that

I just get it out there, devil may care

I can’t wait

poetry is not always pretty

but deserves to be read anyway

for these are the things you have always wanted

but allowed to slip away
