Poetry knows no bounds

Limitless; it is endless

Repetitive; it is redundant

 

Meaning becomes purpose

Words become a story

Writers find themselves at liberty to say

Nothing comprehensible

 

Soundless music envelopes structure

Tone envokes emotion

Literary devices entice the reader

Punctuation becomes non-existant

Comradery is found in open, white spaces

 

As the stanzas grow longer

And the words become smaller

It appears that the finish is near

But what does is matter?

 

Nobody reads poetry.
