NEWSPAPER POETRY – LACK OF INSIGHT

if you’ve been writing poetry

for a number of years,

you know that,

the “poets market

provides a wide range

of journals to meet your needs;

know that the newspaper absolutely…

will not accept submissions.

for the sake of a good hardy debate,

i’ll pull this from an article

in the erie pa newspaper,

“the embarrassment i don’t think is enough.”

after all –

pain, suffering, humiliation and emotional distress

are “the guts” of poetry.

i’d have to say,

that if a man’s genitals

were super glued to his abdomen –

his buttucks sealed shut,

and that fingernail polish

was used to spell out a profanity

on his back, is a bon-a-fide picture.

that editor proved poetry was at its finest!!
