Poems by Inchiki


New Dogma

Donít rhyme too much
Donít at metaphor clutch

Donít start lines with capitals
Donít dwell on flower petals

(instead like a supping bee
draw power from the flower)

Build on each idea, pause
Only to release your tears

Do not say what you mean
But do mean what you say

And as each successive verb
Causes your reader to loose his or her nerve

Paralyze them with a noun!
Leave them dribbling on the ground!

And only then, my precious Ning
Will the real magic of the poetry
