Poetic Styles

Poetic Styles

A Poem by David E Navarro
"

Have you ever considered that poetic styles are akin to fashion?

"
I trend--to like Goth poems,
black and white with all the piercings;
but the runway Paris poems'
hats and scarves can be endearing;

and heroic flowing poems,
the Athenian dresses I see,
are better than the Chiton poems
which all seem Greek to me;

however, there remains a place
for the raw street-poem thing
with clash of sport and formal wear
and all topped off with bling;

the sexy poems of legs and boots
I just normally wouldn't book,
but they compel me still to drop
my shades and take a look;

high heel stiletto poems
seem to always impress me,
whenever I'm out trendspotting
the feet of poetry;

and I would be remiss to skip
formal poems of renown,
such classic form and intrigue
as the flowing evening gown;

which leads me to imagine
modern minimalist wear,
Victoria's Secret poetry
with almost nothing there;

but I digress and must admit
the preferred style for me,
is the casual relaxing stuff
of loungewear poetry.

yes, I found fashion mixes well with
poetry; I've written styles of fashion
into many of my poems from blue
jeans and sweat shirts to the elegant
furs and jewels ..the haute couture
of social elite ..i like how this flows
how you cover so many styles here
so well written and expressed
