Presumably An English Teacher

"What is the meaning of this poem?"
Asks my teacher.
And I silently laugh
Because everyone
Knows that
Poems 
Have no meaning
Because poems are
A bunch of 
Words with
Atrocious grammar 
And misused 
Punctuation marks
W
   I
    T
      H strange spaces
in



b e t w e e n .

Every poem has to have a consistent rhythm or it just sounds boring and like a ordinary run of the mill sentence
Rather than a
Beautifully crafted
Epiphany of life
And nature
And love
And death
And everything in
The middle.
Some poems tell
A story
Without needing
A meaning but
Maybe needing rhymes
And tales of great times
But if
A "poem" has a meaning 
Then it's just
A short story 
With bunch of 
Words and
Atrocious grammar 
And misused 
Punctuation marks
W
   I
    T
      H strange spaces

in



b e t w e e n .


I think
My teacher 

n e
e d
s

An epiphany or
I might
Fail this class.
