(Writ upon the nonprofit incorporation of the poet’s Foundation for Poetic Justice)

*****

She’s polishing the Articles
Of Incorporation,
Readying to send them for
Approval by her nation

And just in case the details
Of that project were too few
She’s polishing up, just as well,
All the bylaws too

She’s taking notes from phone calls
All over the place
Hoping that the scribbled
Information later may retrace

While surely it is poetry
That be her compositions’ norm
In this prosaic moment, she’s
Filling out another form

Plans of Business
Statements of Purpose
Churning so internally
Need some mama come an’ burp us!

If rhymes appear in this blank space
Readers’ hearts to soften
Than they by habit have been
A little bit less often

Think ye kindly of the poet
Who, regretfully,
Is wrestling, much like Jacob, with
Her Statement of Philosophy!
