A Bad Poem for Easter (Or Anytime)
by Saragale Borri Tucker

I learned to write bad poems a while ago-
if you really care about poetry the way I do,
you can intimidate the heck out of yourself
and get as constipated with ideas and sounds as you could with cheese.

Words are the prunes I need and they work best for me in the form of poetry­
not necessarily the poetry that observes and gives us pieces
so that we may put the ideas together for ourselves­
not necessarily the elevated poetry of transformation­

or the many kinds of poetry that beguile with words, sounds, and thoughts­

no
just a little whiny bad poem can get things going again.

Hey­maybe I'll never write good poetry,
but at least I'll keep the underlying process going!
