Can someone tell me, please?
What is this poem? Does it
have a defined style? Format?
 Is the syntax right no matter
what the verse's reason?
Need one categorize, and why?
And can some woman's spoken voice,
a charming stranger's accent, please translate,
read words with rolling r's,
make poetic moves like chords
flow smoothly from syllabic line to line,
stanza to stanza, imbibe, invoke the
reader's heart, illuminate
a foreign writer's world with
diversity in free verse or metered rhymes,
through new eyes, new ears,
yet still express
the constant same:
our human joys and fears?
