Default poem writing


how hard can it be?

they make it sound like working
out the formula for
rocket fuel

look, it's like this:

first present the naked body

note the appearance "issues"

now clothe it so that
it is concealing what
you want disguised

how, you ask?

use metaphors


umm, do thes lines
make my
bias
look big?

Looks a little wide in the beam. But I've always liked booty in a poem.
