Glisten by Grant Harbison
A line in time prevents the crime
Anything is possible when words don’t rhyme
I rant and bicker and pull on my hair
Am I hackneyed, boring or threadbare?
Is it good enough?
I’m never quite sure
My alternative poems are far from pure
I’m just glad that you read and listen
That appreciation makes me glisten
And that my friends thrills me to the core
And I’ll do my best to give you more
