Broken Poetry

By Ellawind, Seattle, WA

This is
poetry because my sentences
are broken and lack
My words sing like a song
but not enough
to earn a beat.
They flow like a story
but not enough
to earn a binding.
This is
poetry because I decided I
didn’t want to be ordinary.
This is poetry because
I want to be unique and prove
that anything,
even this
about how poems are really just broken stories and useless songs,
can be
So that makes this one of the most
poems I could write.
