Ode To The Post Modernist


so it’s hey ho, anything
goes down on the farm
where the thinking shrinks
from metricality
or rhyme which
stinks of old ideas

post modernists would
all agree simplicity
produces terser verse
in tighter lines on ad eundem
themes refined
as commonplace and ordinary

while I -
I float in seas
as algae-rich as bouillabaisse
to feed on fish
and fattened clams
with no degree and no such qualms
