A Document of Poetry

A document of poetry, a pamphlet of poetry, call I
As for the brochure design,
The longer-longer poems,
Docketing letters and their issuance not,
But of the poems.

Whose poems, who should have
And who is docketing them,
Releasing as a poetic testament,
How should it be poetry,
How the documents of it?

No peon there to enter into,
No clerk to give the reference number and the date
As for keeping the record
With regard to the issuance of the letter
And the caption included under which.

There is none, none to record all that,
To docket it all,
Letters not, the poems
And the statements put forward for,
No peon to post them
Or to go with the peon book
To be initialled.

No curator of the poetic archives to manage all these,
The manuscripts,
The letters and correspondences of the poet,
The mementoes and memorabilia,
The photograph albums.

A statement of poetry,
Poetry full of statements,
A document of poesy,
Full of documentation, sample poems,
Representing and docketing the contents in ledger-book,
As it a written document,
Not a booklet-like pamphlet,
Nor statements given or put in writing,
May have the elements naturally,
But not from the title point of view.
