• Poetry can be bigger than the universe
    Or smaller than an atom
    Poetry can be long, like an epic poem
    Or short, like a simple haiku
    Poetry broadens the mind
    Or it can also close it
    Poetry can be taken literally
    Or it’s meaning abstract

    A poem’s meaning can be seen in plain sight
    Or hidden behind cleverly woven words
    A poem could talk weeks to write
    Or maybe the 5 minutes before its due
    A poem can rhyme in every line
    Or rhyme nothing at all
    A poem doesn’t need grammar
    Or capitals, punctuation

    Poems could be more than everything
    Or maybe even less than nothing
