writing a poem is easy. just tear out a piece of soul…a nice big one, about two heart-widths should do…and lay it flat on a hot anvil for about thirty seconds or until it stops screaming. then ready your words…be sure to shake thoroughly, or they’ll run…and take care to choose fresh thoughts, as even a hint of staleness will rip your soul. pour carefully into the needle, letter by letter, watching for excess air bubbles and intruding speech bubbles. take your prepared soul, inject words, throw result against nearest wall until it feels “right”…and there you have it. fresh poetry. (poem should stay fresh until the moment someone reads it…afterward, dispose of carefully in an appropriate facility, as words can be toxic)
