give me poetry

by John Yamrus


give me poetry

that’s new.

that fails.

that makes mistakes.

give me poetry
that you don’t know
what in the world you need to name it.

give me poetry
that bleeds from the eyes

and
shouts at the world.

give me poetry that stands naked and beaten,
with its back against the wall,
still screaming
I AM NOW!
