why write poetry

August 9, 2012

Amidst increasing hordes
of number faced suits who
can calculate at the speed
of sound and are ticker taken
by the handful and swallowed
or rejected by monolithic
buildings stacked on top of
each other, stacked on top of
each other in cities that more
and more look like and function
as circuit boards only
lighting up less and dimming down
more and more until each
city becomes another defunct
gigantic ATM, it has become
increasingly important to notice
rabbit tracks, and wonder
if snow hurts when it falls.

    Yeehaw! This is Ars Poetica at its finest. No, but really, it is.

  2. Couldn’t have put it any better. Makes me smile inwardly.

    If there’s one thing that really brings the Sieve together, it’s our hatred of the economy.
