What Be It, AntiPoetry?
The moment ordinary Poets hear that word they cringe.
Could there be a confrontational connotation?
For surely the prefix: Anti- indicates taking a stance
Against something or other. So why bother?
In actuality, AntiPoetry is a Self-defeating exercise
Whereby the writer may fly; freed from gravitas and vanitas.
Like all transitional forms during the course of evolution
It is a missing link that bridges old world poesy and Meta-poetics.
Novel species shall arise from said proverbial soup!
Displayed in memoriam at wax poetry museums.
Archetypal feathers from an archeopteryx
Will give wings to flightless bards who are apteryx!
