I just remembered what this poem has not done; it hasn't died. Yes, credit
me, Marcy Jarvis, with that brilliant thesis.

yes, that has occurred to me, that it is not rhyming. But though I like
non rhyming poems, I always feel a little like I am cheating when I write a
straight free verse poem that uses nothing artistic in its delivery because
I feel like I could just as well write it as a piece of prose and why
bother with poetry and being somehow special. lol.

I used to think I saw what this poem was not doing but I can not for the
life of me see what it is now other than not pormoting itself. lol. I
think what it is doing is describing very clearly the life (or job, if you
will) of a poet or a poem. A good one, anyway.
