Finally, some notes from last year, October, in my creative writing class, delivered and structured as a poem.
The world is not yet a perfect place.
“I just don’t believe feminist men exist.”
We are speaking of politics, sir
Of the conscience of the artist
“Imagine a comedian,”
He outlines how prone poetry is to self-parody
An interesting discussion
Which is a polite way of saying my views and his
Do not match up at all
But there is this gem,
Little gleaming phrase
Which I suppose is what a poet does:
“How different would your serious poem
be from a parody of themselves?”
Then he quoted Oliver Cromwell.
