Poems like Poops

Poems like poops
arise from a dull and pregnant feeling
in the gut which begs to be released.

At times they must be coaxed,
while at times
they arrive
at uncontrollable speeds.

Poems like poops
require solitude
for them to feel
serenely gratifying.

They must be squeezed out
plopped out from the soul.
The more monstrous the poem,
more rewarding the deed.

Poems like poops
have distinctive genres,
accepted by the writer, but not by all.
Critics may stick up their nose
or clasp their nostrils closed
or with disgust, exit the reading hall.

The End
