Prose As Poetry

those who write prose as poems
might keep in mind that you
should make them rhyme,
as the reader is inclined to expect
a pay-off
of poetic effect from time to time
when seeing those breaks of line
like an unexpected shot of wine
or the epicure who's waiting
to hear the sudden knock on the door
from his favorite whore;
instead there's the quickening of the
pulse that leads to nowhere,
and lord knows everyone's been there
and the magazine with perfume ads by Christian Dior
ends up being closer to the door than the . . .

i'm just doing it like it's done
in newspapers and magazines
only without the spacing to
make all the lines equal length
it's so much easier to read
T H A T 's t h e p a y o f f
and it looks so neat and tidy
the words all tucked away
to the left like this. ... ...:D

Eh...then why write in prose at all?
You'd be as well to just stick to formal poetry.

prose-peotry is that prose with a poetic sense
of itself.
