His Fans Always Know What They Like

His Fans Always Know What They Like by Jim Wittenberg

 

MAKING SENSE IS OLD NEWS

Some poets prefer nonsense
because it is easier to
pass off as genius.
The young protest society
while sucking its tit,
rebellion only a game
within protected boundaries,
and in the end most works
are nothing to
awaken, frighten, excite, but only
pastel mobiles or
balloon animals.
Sometimes people will say if it makes sense
it is boring
and common,
while really it is the most unusual thing
you will see in almost any
poetry magazine, which prefer
dream idiocy
like the drooling of infants,
harmless,
without message
and with a diffused spirit
which can’t quite speak
but delights the corpulent matrons.
