Meaningful

This poem is meaningful
so meaningful
so full
of meaning
with words
that are cromulent
and thus meaningful
so meaningful
meaningful meaningful meaningful
when you say the word over and over
it becomes no longer meaningful
but meaningful it is
and meaningful it shall remain
and it is my poem
and it
is
mean

Flower

I found a flower
in the middle of a metaphor
and doused it in gasoline
because of my hatred for metaphors
but once I was done
I found
it had become a simile
which was worse
so now I just let
flowers be metaphors
though I grind
my teeth
as I do

Not

Not by when
the burbling stream
of if and how
and oh but the carrot
oh but the carrot
oh but the loss
of not
lost in a seemingwise
furfle of language
and the words are all different
and not words
and not mine
and not into
the end
of the not

BUT WHY
