I wanna write
the kind of poem that everybody is supposed to like
and it will be studied
and disected
and diagrammed
until every nuance
has been debated
in journals ans seminars and Internet chatrooms
by stuffy academics with no sense of humor whatsoever
so many times
until no one no longer
gives a damn
And everybody
I mean everybody
can no longer remember
why anybody ever thought it was good
much less worthy of literary merit
to ever begin with
I'd be content with that
