Lightweight free-verse exploration,
withered ghosts and wisps of phrase,
breezy unamusing musings
a titter, tear or lyric warning –
fail to reach a middling height;
then subside to shallow murmurs
cryptic, dull confessional mush;
suitable for a poker-faced
Must you set this stuff in motion
fizzling through our universe:
half-bright comets leaving trails
of boring verse?
Incoherent thoughts meander
through your words like fish through nets
unable to ensnare your reader.
whatever it was you started saying
(weirdly spaced, unpunctuated).
Could it be such thoughts are better
