Revisions - Poem by warner treuter
Revisions are what poetry is all about.

Who lived in a weird area where
Many of the deer seemed to have a nick in their ear.

With his kill, a good sized buck
Strapped to the hood of his car.
A solid head shot. He explained to everyone

He could quit hunting; besides, he said,
My eyes is gettin' too bad to aim, anyways.
I like to write poems like that, but they do take
