I wish I could tangle up my words like you do;
create paradoxical, beautiful, undefinable nonsense
with that gleaming hint of meaning,
that contextual truth, the pearl hooded by
words upon words upon words and
wrapped around with soft whispers of nothing
harsh bites of ironic irrelevance
and carefully misleading references no one will ever understand

Alas, my heart dribbles off my sleeve
and lands exactly where it falls;
it beetles across the page,
being what it is

I wish I could look at my poetry -
smile, and go:
"Yes - that is a mystery"
A poem about writing poems!

EDIT: I am very honoured to have received a Daily Literature Deviation award on this - thanks so much!

Congratulations on the DLD! It's an insightful piece of ars poetica - there's a certain strain of contemporary poetry that's equally elusive and beautiful that this poem seems to describe well. Good stuff.

Thank you so much! I know the type of poetry you refer to, it was my inspiration in writing this, and I'm glad the reader can pick up what I'm on about. ^_^
