don't let poetry die


By David Allen

Nameless nouns
Nod at the nuanced
Adjectives attracting
All the attention
Of the adverbs,
As the verbs ventilate
Their vile visions
Of the poems poured
Painfully from pens
The poet pressed
To the page.

    And the speechwriters thumbed thesauruses to keep their candidates from becoming dinosauruses.

    Love your poem, Mr. Allen. But that’s not news.

    Your forever pal,
