FAMILY POETRY

   


I love FAMILY POETRY
the famous American poetess said
a decade since her menopause

do you write FAMILY POETRY

she asked

hell no

family is

  the highest point

  of suffering

on the tip of

       the mountain

                              of sorrow and despair

ice covered

could be a good

            subject for a novel

                                                              or short story

and that’s it

poor old poetess

translated

   into  dozens of

               languages

former fiancée

of one

           great dead

  Beat

who used to

       hit her

      in the face

face

        still sexy

                        despite age

nowadays

every poetess has

at least one book

out

about her family

thousands of books like that

all identical
