Collaboration And Creation - Poem by Michael Pruchnicki

*How dare you impose your will
on a poet who posts his work
for our judgment? *

I only offered a suggestion
on how he might improve
a line or two! You know,
like a coach who points
out a player's errors.

*Though I may sympathize,
(though that's unlikely in your case)
you're still guilty of violating
the creative code that we have
invented out of scraps and
tattered cloth to suit the case! *

But I was not imposing my taste
(which apparently ain't yours)
on the writing of others.
Read my stuff before you jump
to wordy judgments.
Climb down from
that high horse!
