A Real Poem (by Jack Micheline, from his book Sixty-Seven Poems for Downtrodden Saints)

A real poem bites the wind
And kisses stars
A real poem is not in a book
It’s a knockout
A long shot
A shot in the mouth
A crack of a bat
A lost midget turning into a giant
A lost soul finding its own way
After a generation of mediocrity and vipers
A real poem
Kicks the politicians in the ass
Kicks the poetry politicians in the balls
It is too hot to handle
It is more dangerous than war
It is a firefly
A rainbow for all
