Your trite observations are word-crafted dullness
A poem half-empty mistaken for fullness . . .
You really think people pay money to read this?
The MFA chapbook as strong soporific;
For use as a sedative: truly terrific—
Do poetry-lovers pay money to read this?
Your online credentials are surely impressive . . .
Your verses, however, are drab and regressive.
Do muses think people pay money to read this?
This tepid admixture of phrases concocted;
A tottering temple of yawn you’ve constructed,
(Though readers might even pay money to read this.)
PROMPT #22: write a poem that uses repetition.
You can repeat a sound, a word, a phrase, or an image, or any combination of things.
