Poiesis

Imagine you are a poet.

 

Forget everything else

Poetry is your calling,

for these next few minutes

Can you describe it?

 

What is the point of a poem?
Of poetry, in general

Do you know?

Does anyone?

 

A poet looks out at the world

Takes in the world; breathes it in

And lets out meaning; Writes meaning

 

Meaning is life;

What the poet

sees, hears, does

from his glasses

 

His point of view

Your point of view.

Can you do it?

Should you do it?
