A Study in Prose

By J.J. Childs:


A Study in Prose



i think

that if

you want to be a poet

you only need a few things:


a bleeding heart (get one on the black market)

an old but also young soul

unresolved issues with your father

and

typewriter font.


put words

into short lines

break sent

ences

at random

and

put

individual

words

on

lines



post it on an online blog

sans capitals, periods, proofreading

is there a message?

better add one


sad is bad.
