The House that Kevin Built


Buzzword b[l]eached pompos-city
unhinges poetic experience's
foundations.

Quickie contests try city zen patience,
sat on a mo[nu]ment
rapping at grief.

Contest[ed] cliques p[l]ay it forward
feature backward thinking,
[ill]iterative judgements often biased.

Uncommented gems, rhyme overlooked
alongside ready vers libres rants,
compete with time for lebensraum.
