Poesy plus Polemics

"Toadstools" Painting by Doug Goodale From “Toadstools”
Painting by Doug Goodale

I admire the decay
matter reduced
to raw elements

spawning mycelium
literate forest floors
bursting with fruit

poetry too must endure
deconstruction its
language unstable

rogue syntax intends
to elicit a reader
interpreted meaning

the poet as agent
provocateur serves
up inducements

from underground
pools of amorphous
ideas here and there

popping free of the
nourishing soil where
they beg to be plucked

sweet or savory bitter
or earthy is left to the
harvesting tongue

such consumer based
judgment defines what
achieves satisfaction

the process depends
on the decomposition
of author experience

fall-off of thoughts
slough of ages discrete
spores of knowledge

things learned worth
repeating and feeding
the hungriest eyes
