I don’t care why
You like my art –
I just care that
You like my art

Notes to this poem…
A square poem is my own format creation where there are the same number of syllables in each line as there are lines in the poem. In this case, it is a 4 x 4 square poem. There are 4 syllables in each of the 4 lines.
Pretty much how I feel about wanting people to like my art. 🙂
The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
