frybread sonnet #011: POETRY HACKS

Poetry hack - not hack like wack ass "lifehack" type
wannabe codemonkey algorithmic bullshit,
where "hack" gives all physical power to self-hype
ego "creative class" inactive snarky wit.

Poetry hack - not hack like per-the-word freelance
indiscriminate word pounder without thought, paid
little, caring less, cranking out words more by chance
than plan, making ends meet (though hackney turns to jade).

Poetry hack - as in cut through grand "what the fuck?"
born from raw primordial muck manufactured
into new world re-ordered still feeling like suck,
feeling less than whole, screwed-up, completely fractured.

Poetry hack - simple assed monkeyhead pokes words
into robot machines - no conference of birds.
