I've decided
That this poem will not rhyme
Simply because it
Would look good if it did somehow
More perfect        More whole      More poem-y.

Nor will it talk
About anything poignant
Or stuff like that
Because it's cliched
Like those blank-walked-into-a-bar jokes
Which suck.

Instead, all it will be
Is this
An open-ended,
Interpretable like Silly Putty tome
And you can make up your own damn words
If you think you can do better
Or just if you'd like to.

- Gregory Bogosian
