I Am 25 Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


With a love a madness for ShelleyA
Chatterton RimbaudB
and the needy yap of my youthC
has gone from ear to earD
Especially old poetmen who retractB
who consult other old poetmenE
who speak their youth in whispersF
saying I did those thenE
but that was thenE
that was thenE
O I would quiet old menE
say to them I am your friendB
what you once were thru meA
you'll be againE
Then at night in the confidence of their homesG
rip out their apology tonguesH
and steal their poemsI
