Simple Poetry

Simple poetry, without thought only need
simple poetry
let it be, unto me
Perhaps the complexity, of
rather simple poetry will
someday, be better known to thee, but
moreso to be blessed by the light
so beautifully bright and the shadows
so deep in the wonderfull night, peaceful indeed
and beautiful too
these things to me are true

  I was in a terrible argument this morning over poetry... my dread of ever being "discovered" in real life as a "poet" (I don't consider myself that, which is what the fight was over)... The Dead Art of Poetry, the Dead-end of Writing Skills, etc. Why we hide things from the people who "love" us and why we open ourselves to others. And how the best way to becoming a poet is to die with your notebooks in your arms. Only then do people take your work "seriously" it seems. "The last words... let's publish this!"

I love poetry... but it's a guilty pleasure, seemingly sinful in a way. If I felt this way about Dorito's, I'm sure I would be 300 lbs. with tons of empty bags under my bed... but luckily, I just forget to eat some days and only collect notebooks.

PS: Just an FYI... rabbits eat paper. Never let a rabbit out of its cage to wander free, until you pick up your notebooks first.
