He Used the Word “Funny”

Sometimes he will read the poem
of the day and then the explanation

by the author and decide that the
explanation with a little work on

syllabic emphases and break lines
here and there would actually make

a better poem than the poem, because,
if for no other reason, it would be

easier to understand and a famous
poet once said that poetry doesn’t

need to be cryptic, dense and really
difficult to understand, dark and/or

drab and sometimes it could even be
funny. Actually, he thinks the famous

poet said “humorous,” but on second
thought, the famous poet would have

been just as or maybe even more
comfortable saying “funny.”
