Xugh and Mug in Plain Sense

I'll do xugh and mug another day,
Said mug to xugh, toggling to read poems
Liberated from "missed connections,"
Such as that from "the drunk Irish guy"
To "the girl in red tights" on the train.

Philosophers in serious tones
(And when are philosophers ever
Giddy?) were intoning about poems,
Including poems found on the subway
As if philosophers knew something

About poetry poets didn't
Know about philosophy, certain
As everyone is about poets
Being easier to understand
Than science, harder than plain sense.
