The Poetry-Makers   [nonce form]

The poetry-makers dined on figs and seseme sticks
they stayed at the office late Friday   well into Saturday
they'd browse the internet vacantly   observing the flux
of thought and language the way it flows   in their latter day
  that day   late in the game of loss and breaking
  that forms   the code and norm of poetry-making

The poetry-makers would study languages   fleetingly
they'd moil for hours when translating   a line or two
they weren't concerned about publishing   repeating the
old adage "publish or perish" twisted   resigning to
  the joy of fading   into the slumbrous baking
  obscurity's oven   complicit in poetry-making

I like the flow and the setting of these "poetry makers.' Nicely done.
