13 Days

Day 9

poets who write on and on – who jumble words about meaning – who want us to kneel at the altar of their feelings; their sure things – are like priests promising angel dust sprinkles to anyone.

poets who unhinge themselves writing silent scribbles lose the tongues of their adulation – the passion of their whispers, and are like children who’ve stuffed their mouths too full with crumbs.

poets who no longer sing in voices that express clarity about charity, are like champions who have lost the battle with reverberation – explaining to god, that sound is too big a demand to place on a word in the beginning.

poets who perspire hallucinated tears while struggling with where to place a (.) are believers in the hoodoo of modern grammar and are like bellhops wondering where a paradigms suitcase might live.

  1. i’m in love with you…..1 poet 4 man

  2. poets who waste their wisdom ranting about the futility of others’ poetry are wasting everyone’s time.

    poets who voice their twisted opinions about expression fail to comprehend the basic fact of poetry and all of humanity-a need to release what is held inside.

    not all poetry has to save the world. not all wise men have to believe in a greater good for humanity. some people just like to live. some people like to help others. a few, like you and myself, would like to help the world. but the difference between us seems to be that i understand the complacent side of humanity. let the poets write about their feelings. let them state their opinions about useless things. let them boggle their own minds with grammar. let them be themselves. not all people think lke you do. let that be a lesson.
