Never Rhyme

https://www.shrirammaheshwari.in/2020/06/never-rhyme.html

why don’t my poems
ever rhyme
why can’t they just
abide by the rules
why do they just
resemble a stream
of unintended consciousness

why don’t my poems
ever rhyme
keep themselves in line
have a little more
respect for the form
and not just skip away
with faeries
and what about
punctuation
for which it shows
no inclination
how come my poems
never rhyme
and stay beyond
their welcome

how come my poems
never rhyme
and never know
just when
or how
to
end.
