Essay (Poetry)

“Essay” is a poem about writing poetry and treating it as a rhyming essay. It’s about the fusion of prose and poetry.

This is an essay
Full of whack wordplay 
Have I gone all cray
No dues left to pay
I’ve cashed out today

Colorful array
Mixed with bluish greys
A palette to amaze
A syllable maze
Lost you in a daze

These words meant to raise
Hot rhythm ablaze
Lift up your sad gaze
Rhymes meant to amaze
In magical ways
