Then again, because

Then again, because

A Poem by jinjahman

It's my word
but then again
the sense of a response is 
lost without you

because

I'm lost in a word pool.
then again
my feet wobbled here in 
the quest for a library of
easily quotable biblical bubbles

because

I'm frost with 'sugar' 
in a frozen land
and chilly as a literary icicle 
in a 'horsehair' bath of ink
suspended from an idea 
outside my area code of conduct

because

I'm not 's' or 'p' in
their essence
I am a p.s.
in an afterthought creche
where btw, "I'll be late collecting ya,
but I'm always there when ya need me"

because 
I am blood
and you are sugar
and we need each other
--not because we sound good-- 
but because..
just because you are sister
and you are brother

ONE

and I am the worst kind of poet you'll hear
because I'm not straight,
in fact I'm 2 economical with everything
in truth 2 point ZERO.
I could lead the country into the freezer.
"wouldn't you know me
if you froze me?"
and we'd get rich and you could get screwed
and bellies would flop into . .

my word pool
and I would read you 
and the day would darken, coldly,

because
I am not worth the binary 
toilet paper this poetiquette is
scribbled upon
because1
because2
because3

I am human.
and there you stand before me,
because.

This is, quite simply put, brilliant. This is everything modern poetry should be, with a beat and vibe and everyman feel about it.

I'm frost with 'sugar'

suspended from an idea

eish - whirling text! loved the idea of
"a library of
easily quotable biblical bubbles"
the world doesn't always need a "straight" poet. otherwise it would all become too monotonous.
