“What is This Poem?” The Poet Asked

This poem is a fireworks fiesta

This poem is a rainbow-colored Rorschach Test

This poem is a Saturday morning cartoon

This poem is a beats-heavy Ke$ha song

This poem is a snazzy time machine

This poem is a snubbed-out Hanukkah candelabrum

This poem is a fruity-flavored bubblegum

This poem is a destructive tidal wave

This poem is a Mars-sized jawbreaker

This poem is a burnt piece of toast

This poem is not really a poem at all

This poem makes no sense

This poem is not a haiku

This poem is a cake is a lie
