unnecessary words [poem]

I like unnecessary words
sentences that linger on the page
with too much detail
I like hearing a voice that isn’t my own
as my eyes skim the page
being possessed by an unfamiliar narrator
I like uncomfortable descriptions
the kind that twist you up inside
until you set down the book
and step away to recover
forget the rules
I like writers who create something
out of thin air
the rest changes on a case by case basis
