Safe Poetry


.


Safe poetry, like safe sex foregoes


Fertilization


Favoring, instead, comfortable latex


Self-protection


Forgetting its purpose, which is


Insemination


Ideas planted like seed in a womb


Gestating


Over time, eventually to be born


Exclaiming


I AM LIVING THOUGHT; DO NOT IGNORE ME!


Conceit?


Perhaps it is, though no more vain than


Self-containment


Playing the odds, instead of plying the truth


Safe poetry


Serves a need, as sterile entertainment


Nothing less


Nothing more


.
