the worst of it was

they were not bad people

sitting in their poetry circle

meeting once a month

as like minded

artistes

literary people

y’know?

each would read their latest work

each line carefully crafted

rhyming in meter

& then

respectfully

they would offer cautious criticism

ideas to lift the work

make it betterer

as if

putting salt & pepper

ketchup

on a shit sandwich

could make that betterer
