The critic

wheels my poem

into surgery.

He packs the skull

with stately


He pins a metrical

foot to its mouth.

He tapes an allusive

paradox to its groin.

My poem opens its

eyes and speaks:

  1. Hi Matthew –

    This is excellent. You may want to correct the spelling; it’s Cesarean Section if you’re referring to the birth process.

    All best, Flora
