Poem has been written. It's called 'Recipe for a prose poem'.

Pretty fancies:
bright, shiny,
brand new --
over a cliff!

Watch the sun play
over the polished surfaces
as they tumble
to dirt
into gravity's arms
to stone
to animals' droppings
and carcasses
and half-finished meals
and other things.

Strain to hear
the distant
c-r-a-s-h
of frail glass
on dirty, gritty ground.
Lean out,
look down
and watch the sun play
over the broken pieces
of fanciful prose
twinkling
far away enough
to give an illusion
of beauty --
an illusion of being
almost as pretty
as you originally wanted it
to be.
