   This is a poem. It is not poetic, but it is a poem.

Right now it is what you are reading. This second

you are reading the word, word. Now you're reading,

reading. You don't even realize what exactly you are

reading until someone like me tells you. You is what

you have just read, just read. I know all of this, and

I'm not even with you. Chances are, I don't even know

you. I don't know who you are, but you just read who

you are, so I guess you do. You just finished reading

do, and now, again, do. And again. Now it's again.

Again again.

I, probably being a stranger to you, know every single

solitary word you are reading now. For instance, I know

you're reading, reading. I also know that in a couple of

seconds, you will read this over again, or read something

altogether different. Or, maybe you'll do neither, just

to oppose what I have said. But I know you're still

reading, so you had better do something else.

You just read, you just read.

Oh my! You put that so well. I get thought patterns like that at times. And yet I,who fanceed I had written a poem about every subject that ever whent through my head didn't think to make a poem of that. And I guess that's good. For I couldn't have done it half so good. how am I to know when you've contibuted work? For there is not an option for email me this auther contributes. And I do hope you contribute again.  For I should love to see if you do as well with other metireal.
