pink picket fences


glue sticks and blue sticks

pens and potatoes

roses are red

and so are tomatoes


creating a poem

that doesn’t make sense

is more fun than painting

a pink picket fence


the words they will take you

where they want to flow

to the beach, or the woods,

or through fresh fallen snow


there’s no need to worry

about logic or boxes

run wild through the fields

like silver-tipped foxes


put subjects and verbs

in the order you want

no need to have talent

you ain’t got to flaunt


it’s all willy and nilly

not one thing is real

speak with your heart

say what you feel


scream if you’re angry

cry if you’re sad

no matter, who cares

if it’s good or it’s bad?


fuck the critics and judges

what do they know?

tell them to shove it

and to hell they should go


see the juice of your brain

spill onto the page

let the thoughts and ideas

escape from their chains


do it this minute!

don’t stop, don’t delay

free rhymes from their cages

let words out to play
