A Poem Written By Some Guy

A dirty fireball.
A dancing tooth.
An octagonal chasm.
A fruitless rock.

Just some guys
Hanging out
By a furry river.
Just some words
On this page.

It doesn’t
Make sense.
It never will.
Unless you
Encompass a flying
Granola bar
On stilts.
A gorilla man eating
Its reflection
Made of hair.
A giant Cyclops
With five eyes.

There is too much,
And still more,
For you to do
To unlock this
Thing’s meaning.
So stop trying.
You punk bubble.

This is so clever. I love it. It underlines that even when things are absolutely ridiculous, poetic minds try to make meaning of it. Like what I just did there. Iaccidentally found a meaning to your meaningless poem. Oh boy, how ironic.

Something else that makes you a wonderful writer: You're able to pick up on the hidden meanings of poems, and I'm sure you do the same with other things on a daily basis. I really was not expecting you to read any of my work. It makes me happy to know that I can enjoy the writings of one such as yourself and get critiqued by that same person. I feel that you have so much to teach me, and I'm very eager to learn what I can.
