(fr. Marche - Border) - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Seeping without conquest through the world
only happened with no humans beyond a march
(Fr. marche - border) .

A poet who watches quiz shows
knows that the more the reader knows
the less the poet needs to disclose,
and the less the more -
to avert frustration.

Both make writing a dare,
but the latter can make it a bore.

2 trains of thought,
sometimes 3 or 4 or more,
going into a work
is a technique surreal,
for a new feel of the real.

To minimize confusion
and lessen a look ham-fisted
the 2 or 3 or 4 or more
are best-assisted
by illusion.
