poetry is a poet’s heart

Poets don’t write because they can.

Poets write poetry because they can’t outrun it-

magic floating words appear wherever they are

a literary melody that sways its way down from the ether

and into the poet’s heart.

like a drop of thick black ink falling into virginal water

the words saturate every inch of a poet’s soul

before flowing from inspired hands and

transforming into letters on the page.

Poets don’t write because they can.

Poets write poetry because they are

one and the same.
