I’m not proud of it, but yeah, I made it up on the spot in this video and then transcribed it. That’s why I’m speaking so slowly. I’m not drunk. I’m just trying to choose words:
my last two poems have been prose poems
is because I have been composing them
the voice-to-type feature
on my stupid smart phone.
No pen, or pencil lead, or
those two poems.
I am videotaping myself
talking the poem.
In that way, this poem
about writing poems
(which a friend of mine says is not a thing)
is a video poem,
a spoken word poem,
improvised on the spot,
for your reading, viewing, listening pleasure,
right now, in this moment, in my office,
in the dark.
