In response to Eating Poetry

6 Apr

I wrote this poem in response to Mark Strand’s “Eating Poetry“:

The Poor Librarian

I sense his wicked elation
and watch with an air of resignation;
my despair
gives way to fear.

My overwhelming childish emotion
contributes to my confusion.
I am surprised
to see the joy in his eyes.

My one wish?
To understand this senselessness.
