Piss for poetry;
just words splashed 
on hard surfaces.
Tough heads 
endeavoring to break 
a writer’s code
back washed when questions asked,
seeking to unfold their deepest thoughts.
Some minds derive their own solution;
Minds blown to shreds
under pressure
of piecing a lunatic’s gig-saw.
Letters fling on paper
With a fool’s claim;
Abstract discard drenched
Searching minds to solve 
a psycho’s thoughts.
The verbal rationalization?
A recognizable taste results,
Somewhat like beer,
But bitter.

This is a slam. I could not find this form.

funny first line there, Earle. I just say "to each his own' It's very strange what some people prefer reading over other people! Poetry soup removed Slam as a form if you are still wondering. Check out all the blogs this week. it was a reall big deal. Luv Andrea

They have removed Slam from the list because that it does not fit the poetry soup's site ...Slam is suppose to be read aloud to an audience for competition...Therefore one cannot read or perform on this site as of now..There are rules for poetry on this site listed on homepage..If it does not meet the rules, one can be asked to remove it...I don't really see anything in this one that stands out that would cause it to be removed except for the first word maybe would be offensive to some..Sara

No form needed. Poetry according to me I think is beyond any form. You need only to pour out ur thoughts, emotions and so you did here. I can make out that u r reading a poet's mind and that's urs. Good one.

i think that the question of the day...what is poetry really? some odd jumble of words that don't make sense at all to the reader but the writer only knows, some words that sound the same as long as they hold, some teenager writing about how he or she got dumped, or someone telling an experience of being jumped, idk man! but i think as long as some point gets across it's alright by me
