yer betteren me

yer betteren me

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

yer betteren me

i like reading yer pottery
you are creativer than i yam

i wished my mind werked like that
my thoughts unravel like poured gravel

dumped on a road of confusion
but at least my spilling 
and grandeur 

is improving

but
i still like reading yer pottery
it's always a bowl 
shaped of good werds.

Pottery & bowl of words . . . brilliant! Your poem challenges us all NOT to make thoughtless judgemental remarks about whatever "level" we think someone is writing at . . . whatever one thinks about the AGE of a writer (yesterday a young friend's poem disregarded becuz her point of view reflects her age) . . . lets just meet people where they are, so they feel inspired to do better, not shamed for doing badly . . . our cafe community is about what people have to say, not judging their skill in writing it (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I drove my mother to Walmart this morning and between the bucket seats was some of my "new" poems. She read one and made a whimsical face. Sometimes fanciful faces mean something fantastic has happened. Sometimes it doesn't......dana

I yam? Is this Popeye the sailor speaking? I think I'm going to start using "yer" (John Wayne version of you are). Apostrophes bug the hell out of me.

Can’t quite help this is Trump thinking of Biden, he knows he is better. As for the poem itself you never cease to amaze me with your widescreen scope of writing styles delivering a very clever humorous piece and the spelling mistakes emphasised the comparison of intellectual differences involved.
