Don’t Look Now But Poetry Is In

If you’re reading this you know it:

Poetry is in.

Read and written

By those one or two aware or metaphysical,

Those more than few in love, depressed,

Oppressed, repressed;

Just pressed to write.


It’s right to write a stanza,

A romance -a, spectacular extravaganza

For whatever and wherever


A public where

There wasn’t.

Rhyme, no rhyme,

Minus meter,

Syntax less or more,


It matters or…

It doesn’t.

The objective is to say it,

Think it

In no special order,

Murdering the word

Or helping word to smolder

On a reader’s shoulder.


Poetry is definitely

Back in
