let's give this baby wings, so she can fly where poetry nodes go to die, and e2 poets can pretend they never even tried...

and now a poem using words to express how words fail to express... futile jumping jacks
words express
like elephants
make love to pigs
without grace
unless both are in the mood
"I'll be the first on the block with a pig-sized elephant!"

words express
like atomic bombs
drop on skittish kittens
hiding in
imaginary briar patch shelters;
"this just in, Armed Forces are invading your middle school."

words express
without reason nor rhyme,
like the stripes on a zebra
alphabetized by time
(in other words randomly reorganized).
"Out! Put fire, this."

They say a rose is a rose is a rose
and by anyother name
would still smell
(if it were to have a nose).
las rosas con probasis

Have you pictured your nose as a rose,
or your roses with noses?
have you realized what the power vocab's control is
over your entire mental flow, SHIZ!?!

descriptions are odious;
similies are fiends.
nevermind the undesribable.
forget the undefinable.
concentrate without labels or words...

grasp the undescribed

Please pardon the interruption, we now take you back to your regularly scheduled program...
