Creativity At The Speed Of Write.

Creativity at the speed of write.

I guess I'm just a dinosaur
some kind of rhyme-a-saurus
who hasn't yet realized he's extinct
it used to take so long
and required so much effort
to engineer a poem
and then get it to the public
and hope the public would get it
you had to have
a royal typewriter
or an underwood
that your dad had
stored for posteriety
a ream of white bonded
erasable sheets
onionskin preferred
plus a bottle of
W H I T E O U T
(snifffffff)
for the black outs
writers often incur
three no.#2 pencils with
large dependable erasers
a well lit room
and some specific
mood enhancers
then upon completion of
said masterpiece
who "said"... I'll never know???
you'd find a business envelope
and place a finished copy
times two
double spaced
inside it
next there was a stamp
you had to lick
and apply with a
special prayer
as you dropped it into
the old blue or
green mailboxes
for it's "poem voyage"
next came a drawer
full of pink rejection slips
and a part time job
to supplement your dreams
that hadn't yet found
"Happily ever after!"
but now it takes
"EEEEEEEEEE"- mail
plus a not so timid mouse
who fetches you a space
where you can pound out
your words of angst
or joy or love
instantly correctable
and spell checked
plus you no longer have to
take a licking
cause you simply stamp
an enter button
and your poem is
whisked away on
>>>>>>>>>>>>electronic beams<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<,
to a poetry web
where it is entangled
with others of its peers
to be perused by
any hungry spider
that passes by
of course these spiders
better known as
"Pre-Editors."
or the general public...
fellow poets and poetesses
read it and
then choose
to either suck the lifeblood
out of your work
with a biting commentary
or wrap it up in a cocoon
of soft silky praise
and save it for another moment
when they are hungry
to savor some inspiration
not of themselves
hence.......
creativity at the speed of Write...
