Wordplay | A Poem by Ananya S. Guha

Criticism is not critique
nor is it critical
or criticizing, critical
wordplay is not useless
nor is criticism. Having been
taught it I am critical of those who taught me for
not critiquing adequately,
only indulging in resonant

Now after learning all that
I sport a modernist pant
and a post modernist shirt.

When I want to say “regards” I say instead “cheers” or “best”.

Criticism is not critiquing
nor criticism. I’ll leave it
at that and go to my post post modernist bed.
