Poetizing spontaneously without combusting

We Are Poetry They Said

keyboardWe Are Poetry They Said

Artist
puts pen to paper
rides keyboard
into sunset

Working
man’s words
fly from fingers
unencumbered
by class

Words
refuse to climb
socialite limbs
staying earthborn
with dreams
of flight

– Desperate words
breath last breaths
and leave a void

– Silence
suffocates

– Disillusioned
by hapless
commentary

– Crying for resolution
and vengeance

Words
long for freedom
unfettered by lust
wandering freely
unbridled

Words
yearn for life
not some
mundane
calling

We are poetry they said!
We are poetry they said!
