The Definition of a Poem

You’ll forgive me if I appear to lack

the gravity expected of a

professional author

I’ll have you know I take my craft

as seriously as sin

And still despite my publications and certifications

for the countless ways I’ve been asked

“What is a poem?”

the best and truest answer

I’ve yet to muster is,


“Whatever the fuck you want it to be.”
