I never studied poetry but I have long enjoyed word play. I like the term Jack Kerouac used: 'word sketches”. I started to do it myself.

Real. Or off the cuff. Like now:

Posting. Back-spacing. Oops.
Cigarette taste. Smoke helps.
What’s ahead? It’s now behind.
Just type. Put it down. Okay.
If it doesn’t work…Forget it.
At least its done. I did it.
