Ars Poetica
Alex1991

An Ars Poetica is a poem about poetry. I was assigned to write one for my creative writing class, and this is what I came up with.

My job is to make observations
 1
Simple observations, about food, work, life, and God
 2
I'll break apart every thought, and build little houses
 3
Each consisting entirely of human language
 4
I'll let people in, charging 50 cents per visit, and allow them to admire the light fixtures
 5
And bathe in simple observations about food, work, life, and God

ARSE N' ALL

my job is too shit tea for my taste --
eye add mire: the fountain - head
be-low - spews what is
meant to be

ex-posed

on this
shawl-there
stand.

then i  smell
fishy.

thanks, Alex1991.

the shoulder stand is a highly-recommended
exercise with the fish pose - half as lengthy
as the former - to complete the regimen.

i kind of think this says a lot about creative writing classes. this is really not a poem, is really pointless conceptually, and you have a nice haircut. that's worth a ten.
