a good poem is one you
can real aloud
and it flows so nicely that
it really only needs one read
even if you don't understand it

A good poem is one that
makes sense and relates
to everyone in a room
at a reading or to someone
alone in a dark room thinking
to themselves even if it takes
more than one read

But a great poem involves
all of these things and will sooner
or later make it to everyone
everywhere through word of mouth
through a magazine or through a daily
posted blog on the internet lost forever
in that jungle of a mess we call the internet.
