Poem: Microfiction

For some reason,

I did not look to find,

We use the word count,

To define,

What a book or story is called,




It’s not much for more than clarification,

And categorization,

But the numbers get a little sloppy,

When we drop in,

And see what the difference even is,

Between micro and flash,

And short story besides.

Do we count a single sentence as a story?

For the sake of labeling?

Do we make it so,


If we found a good story only two words long,

Or five,

That we come up with a new term?

Or is that a microfiction?
