[ Poet Tributes ] Poets gone rogue

---at othertimes
gone quite tame---
---even to the point of lame; †
allow me to digress †
  
Streamed consciousness †
at the table --- we pen its flow; †
whatever dreamed manifests †
is quantified as poetry, although †  
†  
what is it really? †
Your guess †
is as good as mine †
†  
but this you must know: †  
your interpretations †
will do just fine †
†  
From their vinegar †
just keep wine making †
†  
assign meaning to any bodily †
bearing, every summarily snaking †
†  
and regarding pelican, fox, otter †
stag, wren ---- from your own †  
process of association grab-bag †
draw whatever conclusion when †
the dog you are isn't thrown a bone †
†  
And if it so happens †
†  
[ or if shit happens ] †
†  
[ [ whichever happens first ] ] †
†  
that out from a quote unquote poet's †
ass suddenly does burst a wild god †  
in a rush to be heard? †
†  
Do not believe a word said †
†  
Instead, usher it †  
straight to the nearest †
porcelain throne exit †  
and be sure to do us †
a courtesy flush †
†
