I Can’t Write Small Stones

Perhaps it’s my
argumentative nature
or my verbosity,
but I can’t write
small stones.

Some stones are smooth,
some craggy,
but each one is perfect
because they’re not
the product of
an imperfect
human
hand.

So
I stick with the label
micropoetry,
as it describes both
the genre
and my painfully
modest
talent.

  1. Actually I prefer the label 'micro-poetry' as well.

  2. Ha! I totally agree with you. I like my stones a little bigger.

  4. and painfully modest can rank above 95% of what passes for poetry online. I like this piece.
