Poem: Leaves and Raindrops 

This poem won't contain any leaves

I'd like to warn you upfront

If you were expecting leaves

now is your chance to exit

quietly to the back of the room

or the front I don't know

where the door is located

in this imaginary space All I know

is that there are no leaves

I'm all leafed out

There won't be any raindrops either

I almost forgot to mention

there won't be any raindrops

but I didn't forget to mention

there won't be any raindrops

so consider yourself informed

there won't be any raindrops

I realize I'm being repetitive

I've been told repetitively

that's one way

to get you to listen
