Caveat: Poem #2836 “A declaration on the matter of the poet’s dialect”

It's hard to write a poem about poems
because the word 'poem' is awkward.
We're told it's two syllables.
But frankly, as I speak,
it's only got one.
When I write it,
metric doubts
rise up:

– a reverse nonnet. To be clear, “poem” rhymes with “home,” for me.
