Occasional poem

What kind of poem do you like the least?

The kind with yeast.
Rising in a half morning baked
epiphany of meaningly thoughts.

What kind of poem do you like the most?

The kind on toast.
Held fast with a fat veneer
of cream cheese.

What kind of poem does your family like?

The poem that’s caught
In the beak of a shrike
About to be fed to its young.
Healthy lifestyle poems.

What kind of poem does your girlfriend favor?

Sweet-pepper flavor.
Poe, Kunitz, Shyamalan.

What kind of poem is right for Thanksgiving?

Heavy metal poems.
Rivets and drums.
Corpsepaint.
