Pin It

A Poem: Advice 

Brief through the simple

Confusion: transition

To river of thought.

You know what Pound said

About this type of figure

Of speech: Don't do it.

River is a natural object—

Thought an abstract one.

Both have origins

Meander.

When put together:

Collision of worlds

Sounds

Vortex waterfall

Wormhole.

Rules then

For composition:

Who needs them?
