When you write a poem
the last thing
you should be thinking about
is the form or the format.

Poetry isn't something
that concerns rhythm or rhyme
or anything logical and specific.

is the distillation
of everything ugly and beautiful
down into a few pointless words.

Poetry is man's attempt
at proving himself worthy
of the life and the world
he's been gifted with.

Anything but an honor
for such things
is a waste of time
and ink.
