The Poems Are Getting Longer

The poetry people, those who
send poems daily and weekly
via e-mail, must be aware that
we have quite a bit of time
on our hands because the poems
are getting pretty long, this
even from a former US Poet
Laureate and the present one.
These poets usually send short,
pithy, narrative, free verse
poems they like and hope that
we recipients will too, but
the poems they send are getting
a lot longer, a lot longer, so
long that my scroll down finger
gets cramps. I’ve got the time,
but I’m not a great lover of
long poems even the ones I write
kind of like this one is becom-
ing, so, so long.
