every poem

some poems slide down your throat
to sit in your gut, like a bad pizza
some poems get stuck in your teeth
like candy, chewing gum, or glue

then there are poems like butterfly kisses
they flutter by (floating) like eyelash wishes
also some poems are like a brick to the face
spinning, smashing, zero grace

some poems are like equations
that have no solution
some poems are like a thesis
long and winding and no fun

some poems have big words
you'll surely need a dictionary
some poems use small words
that might not add to your vocabulary

but every poem is a poem
that deserves to exist
every rhyme is a rebellion 
in this world of shit
