    now grammer has become too much

    we have grown too much,
    an aberration from the spring days
    of youth


    the true poetry
    of our mosquito words
    lost-

    bulb lights
    in the ceiling
    lamps

    knob handles
    to enter
    the out of doors

    pipe stoves
    to warm
    our toes


    we had poetic
    speech
    then

    now grammar
    has become
    too much
    and the prose grows
    in our nose
    and fills our poems
    with sour grouts
    and the dead leaves
    from a kinder garden

    "Don't worry about readers. Their on their own and will find meanings for your poems in their histories and yearnings. Let language go where it wants. If readers respond to your language, the poem can't help but mean." Poet Richard Hugo
