Twittering Tales: The Caesurian Section

The Caesurian Section

The critic

wheels my poem

into surgery.

He packs the skull

with stately

stressing.

He pins a metrical

foot to its mouth.

He tapes an allusive

paradox to its groin.

My poem opens its

eyes and speaks:

Am I great yet?

  1. Hi Matthew –

    This is excellent. You may want to correct the spelling; itโ€™s Cesarean Section if youโ€™re referring to the birth process.

    All best, Flora
