Poem – a poem.

This is a poem.

It is so because I say so.

Therefore I say so.

Therefore it is so.

It is made of sentences.

These sentences are all simple.

You can understand them.

You can even write them down.

But it is my poem.

It is my poem because I said so.

Sometimes it has rhymes.

Sometimes not.

It is straightforward.

It is what it means.

It means what it is.

You will make it yours after the first reading.

(It will still be my poem.)

It is simple.

It is straightforward.

So I ask you then.

What

is the point.

Story Cubes Poem #4 – Laying Out + Audio bonus

Start by dividing the field with
a neat line of no colour,
straight – the only way – man-made
and focal it becomes – horizontal
Horizon, immanent, basis.

Give appropriate names throughout
your new found land (so as not to
discover a backwards sky)
then have lines perpendicular cut up
and shape a city scape

(and if mirrored in water – a heart beat)
Discipline is your only friend – intricate
designs with no heads or tails but
glass warnings clearly embedded
– Discipline your only frame

Discipline your only frame.

***
The dice gave me a plane, a tower, a hand, a falling star

BONUS : The text to speech version of it because it fits.
