How Poetry May Not Be Taken Seriously - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when spontaneously
a poem comes along
you grab it like a chicken
and choke it
with your usual grammatical
and words not so well chosen
like a stream of erroneous
thoughts misspelled
and put out of context
and then you are too busy
to correct it
and post it right away
and then it comes back
to you when you
read it
after a while when you
come back from office
work and you
the horror of
the Dracula that you made
another Frankenstein
all of them bite you
in your neck
and takes your blood
sucking them
like water.

devastating indeed.
