I myself have been suffering from a blocked creative impulse.
Struggling with mundane thoughts and pondering the banality of of the standard new year poetic output.
Then just this afternoon I was out shopping for next years Christmas gifts in the bottom of the bargain bin when I slipped on a banana skin and knocked my head a tin of sardines becoming temporarily unconscious. It was on awaking from this unfortunate spell of nescience that I was hit with a sudden inspiration and thought of an audacious way to subvert the usual sentiment attached to prose at this time of year. I submit my humble offering below.
You are quite right. Poetry can become dreadfully encumbered by too many words. With this in mind I have showcased my new revised version below.
Now for another one word poem on my upcoming tour of the Amazonian rain forests.
What a disgraceful travesty both these 'poems' are.
Poor choice of wording, scans terribly, and is overly punctuated. Punctuational poetry is a COMPLETELY different style from Minimalist poetry. Typical mistakes made by amateurs who think they are as talented as professional poets such as myself.
