Saturday afternoon poem blogging

This Form

This form expresses now.
At other times other forms.
Now, this form.
This form seems effective now.
It is monotonous, crude.
It may be called "primitive."
A primitive form.
No form, a lack of form.
Nevertheless, it expresses.
It is expressive now.
At other times other forms.
This form now. Expressive now.

W.W.E. Ross (1930)

Yeah, it does what it does well. Ross is often considered the first Canadian Modernist.
