What Is Poetry?


To me

Is none of that

Pretentious tripe

The fancy writers

Use to describe

Their chosen art form


“The crying of the soul”


“The words the heart speaks

When the lips can’t open”


“A pain so intense

That tears become words”



To me

Is just words

That I’m too lazy to fashion

Into something more substantial
