    Any Other Poem

    Just start by throwing in some normal words;
    Tell a fraction of a story -
    Where you're much less prone to mistakes and slips
    So yeah, it's much easier than a story.

    Maybe you don't have to use normal words.
    I could be careless as hell in these expressions
    And I could start every bloody sentence with a conjunction
    And I can throw in as many "and"s as I want
    And I could write like I gave a damn
    Because somehow,
    In some way,
    There'd be too many ways to look at it.

    You could be super-cliche and use your rhyming couplets,
    Or you could screw the rhymes and free-verse it through.
    Because some over-sensitive idiot will find something to say
    And whether it's accurate or ridiculous, it's always true.

    Because rhymes hinge at a sense of continuous balance;
    And free-verses are the opposite of that.
    But I bet I can write something completely unrelated
    And some poor chap would have to dig something out of that

    Because it rhymes.

    But screw it;
    Free-verses are so much easier to do.

    I could throw in some similes and metaphors
    Because they help us to relate to other stuff
    Like an elephant to an electron, even a chalk to cheese;
    Somehow, there'd be an analysis of that.
    Because no matter how I bull my way through
    There's nothing wrong with being overdramatic,
    Stupid, even -
    When it comes to poetry.

    I could throw in the most one-dimensional diction
    And there'd still be ten dimensions of interpretations.
    I can write infinite words on why any other poem is awesome
    Because apparently there's too much to say.
    Because anything means anything;
    There's somehow nothing wrong with that.

    Maybe a chunk of words in the first stanza
    With a sentence in the second stanza
    Means that the persona has a huge head
    And a small ass;
    Finding some evidence for that.

    Maybe something as literal as a poem less than 20 words
    Could be an expression of the writer's laziness
    Or the persona's lack of character depth
    Or ten dimensions of complete bull
    Or some other bull on top of that which somehow makes sense;
    Finding some evidence for that.

    Maybe any other poem
    Could mean any other thing
    Because any other poem
    Can mean any other thing
    Because I can write whatever the hell I want to write
    And someone would think too much for me.
    Finding more evidence for that.

    Any other poem therefore makes complete sense.
    popping my head back in here for lit/art purposes .
    always open for random conversations and stupid convos though ;D!
