They Don't Have to

Some may say

they do, but poems

don't have to have

``content'' to be poems.

Poems can be nothing but

whipped cream with a

bright red cherry on

top, if they want to. Or

poems can be three-legged

pink tables with grapes

and watermelon slices

and an appaloosa horse and

dominoes and a wilting rose

bush in a svelte blue vase

on top. But they

don't have to, of course.
