    dotsKilling Robert Frostdots

    They raise their pens higher, their eyes glinting.
    The instructor carefully explains the procedure.
    This could get messy.
    I want to scream for I
    know this specimin is not yet dead.

    But they slice it to bits anyway. Words flow
    like blood and stain their once white
    gowns. I stare at this pen in my hand. This
    pen is restless. He yearns to leave his
    mark, to compete with the others trying
    to "save" this poor victim.
    This pen is a killer.

    I drop the pen and watch as
    it hits the cold, silent, knowing floor.
    I run from the room, unable to look
    back at the carnage. I throw open
    the door and murmur my appologies to
    Frost and Dickinson and Poe.
    I am so sorry.
    The procedure was a sucess.
    These poems were murdered, explication style.

      Nice one! The thing I hated most about poetry was dissecting it in class. What was Allen Ginsberg TRYING to say to us in "Howl"? Trying to say? I think he said it. What does it mean? Why don't you ask Allen?

    In writing, everyone wants to crawl into your ear and stare out of the holes in your eyes, to "feel" where the writer was at when this piece or that piece was written, when I think the point of it was really, Where are you when you read what they wrote?

    If you can think like a poet, then you're Hatter Mad.
    After all, genius breeds insanity.

      This is funny. I guess the serious part is about students being put up to the murders. It seems that explication is execution in their hands. The pen as a killer in is a great idea. Thanks for the laugh.
