poet

16 Apr

the definition is obsolete i think
there are none of these left
the poets that endure
Ovid, Li Po, Homer, Horace, Catullus, Sappho, Tu Fu
have nothing in common with any of us
not even humanity
which we’ve lost a long time back
or maybe we never had it from the beginning
what some of us lay down is urgent edification of injustice
half truths mixed in with distorted perception
filtered through hungover eyes
and spun to create a savage weird reality
sometimes peaceful and comforting
other times a commiseration which soothes colossal anger
and ameliorates revolutionaries
or incites them
