I often find it difficult to distinguish between a prose poem and poetic prose. For my tastes there ain’t enough poetic devices to satisfy my needs to make it a prose poem, then again it is what it is, and for a form as ambiguous as these who’s to say what it is or isn’t. I think there is poetry in the imagery and maybe an echo of ‘She walks in beauty, like the night’. The one no no I do have about this is it’s about writing, it is a very personal thing, there’s no rule to say it’s right or wrong, but I tend to find it a cheap cop out. He could have just as easily been contemplating elephant training, or robbing a post office with trained raccoons … what I’m trying to say is that unless it’s about the mundane keep the mundane away.
