THE EMERGENCE OF A POEM (by Margo Fuchs Knill)

by admin on August 2, 2011

It is late and
the words are tired
the poem got stuck
in the traffic jam
of the alphabet:
Too many A’s
ran for the first line
and the B’s fainted
The C’s stumbled over
the self righteous D’s
and the E’s jealously
looked down on the slim F’s:

It is late for our world and
too many words are overused and stressed

who invents anew the alphabet
allowing each letter
to stand on its own.
