Playing Around at Jules' Playhouse

                poem by Megan Baldrige

At Jules' Poetry Playhouse

Jules and Poe are playing Pied Piper

to plucky and pusillanimous poets

who are playing

around with words.

 

Here at the Playhouse,

poets make a play for the right word.

Sometimes the words

play hard to get,

but they stay in play,

playing the parts of ingenues

and veterans in playful poetry.

 

Playing hooky from ordinary use,

playing off each other.

Words are kept in play,

playing together,

they play nice, not nice

for momentary pleasure,

or they play for keeps

and we play along.

 

At play in the fields of this Playhouse,

don't you roll over and play dead

we're playing with poetry

we're not playing at poetry.

We're playing for all it's worth

playing the words up

playing around with them

playing down the humdrum,

bringing all of our voices into play,

and we're in La Burque

so we don't need to worry

if it will play in Peoria.
