A Poem: But What’s a Novel Anyway?

Original thought.  
What a novel concept.
But what’s
a novel
anyway?

I can just restate
     repost
     retweet
words
that somebody else
has already said
better than me.
But what’s
a novel
anyway?

Let me say nothing
original
but
let me snap a picture
         snap a selfie
         snap a chat
and forget what’s in
a novel
anyway.

Call me old
     lame
     scared
or call me
by name
AKA Jessica Rae
but don’t call
the real Ray
of the Bradbury name.
He wouldn’t be surprised,
of this world that we find.
He’s already asked that question
and seen
this mess,
this world,
that we find ourselves in.

But what a novel concept.
And what’s a novel anyway?
