To be legit
do poems always have to be deep?
Do they need to burst open
spilling metaphor
or can they just be about anything
like the young doe
standing in the woods across the driveway
from my window
like a statue
but for the sound of green maple leaves
being ground between her teeth
her eyes fixed
on the movement in the window
as a middle aged man
writes about poetry.
