This Is Not A Poem - Poem by Stephen Bennett

though it looks to be
this is not
a poem, though it
looks like
a poem looks. Looks
can be
deceiving you see here
a picture
of a poem I made by hand
by myself
with no help.
not traced
nor copied. I just
made one in my mind I can
do such things there, so there
is nothing to read
I never read it myself I
just say look
and there it is just this
picture to take
while looking for whatever
my or anyone's mind
wants to make.
It could be a screen saver
I made it, but whenever
I see it I just go by it
thinking... well
there it is again.
