The Flagship of Anti-Poetry — est. 2010

What Be It, Anti-Poetry?

What Be It, Anti-Poetry?

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, Anti-Poetry 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 neological 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!

Don't be shy, REPLY!
