3 Step Poetry

It springs upon you. Gleaming clawed metaphor struggle to unhinge. Many-legged adjectives commence to crawl over the page similar to a robotic centipede but bigger, shinier, brasher. Then the seductive purr, the mannered modes, the manicured forms, the unmistakable reek of poetry. The first step they say is recognition, the second step is to find it a home. The third step is to clean up after it craps itself.
