Poetry – Shmoetry

with 4 comments

To write something with power
with meaning
That is the goal
to do it while your butt looks good all the better
but
short of
flinging words at pages
drunken
with the sounds of Kansas
or football fans screaming
walking out the seven steps of the fellow craft degree of freemasonry
they hang elusively out of reach

the words
that ring true
or incite, or invoke
or inflame
lie beyond,
off this page

the distance larger than space
and time
can only be overcome through work
and patience
and I have neither
