Experimental Poetry 16


See if you can figure out the theme of this experimental poem:
the secret to life follows
so you must read this very close
if you get distracted once
you lose it all
pay attention to the trees and to the grass
and pay more than most
why did you look here first
let distraction be your action
and the far become near
then the secret will follow you

The idea is to have some distracting element(s) of the poem. This distraction could manifest as blinking, a different font, color, size, orientation, odd word choice or rhyme, or intentional spelling or grammar mistake. Is it possible to read a poem without being distracted? I don't think it is possible. Try your hardest to not think of a purple polar bear...

Thanks for reading.
