Contemporary Poetry by Michael Marrotti

This is a part two response in a poetic version on the state of poetry by Michael Marrotti. Read & Njoy

Contemporary Poetry

It’s a digital
playground
of unworthy
abstract
artists

Desperate
smiles and
poetry that
owns no merit

Who can write
in volume
the most
forgettable
amount of
poems

It’s a race
to be first
and nobody
is watching

The audience is
the competition
Both are stuck
on the same stanza

Write your boring
little heart out
Write like you
actually have
something to say

If your writing
meets the standards
of contemporary
poetry

You’ll be awarded
a friend request
on Facebook
by some other
guy with an
equally small penis
waiting to praise
your boring poetry
in the hopes that
you’ll do the same

    • Then you misinterpreted the poem. It’s not about homosexuality in any form or fashion. The poem is about the mentality of some of the contemporary poets and how their behavior influences the current development of poetry and relative associations that arise from it.
