How about I just don’t write
any more poems?
Are they even poems?
How about I just use my “poems” as prose?
Why do you think I write poems?
Is it maybe because I’m practicing? 🙂
Could well be…
maybe I just like the shape, the size, the length, the short lines, the breaks, the simplicity….
But to your point… if you read books like
The Great Gatsby,
then you know,
you can’t just write any old prose.
You gotta write prose like a poem,
if you ever want it to be good enough, Old Sport…. 🙂
Then maybe some day,
my nouveau poetry?
May at least become nouveau riche 🙂
