Poetizing spontaneously without combusting

We Are Poetry They Said

We Are Poetry They Said

An artist
puts pen to paper
rides keyboard
into sunset

A working
man’s words
fly from fingers
unencumbered
by class

The words
refuse to climb
socialite limbs
stay earthborn
with dreams
of flight

Desperate words
breath last breaths
and leave a void
a silence
that suffocates

– Disillusioned
by hapless
commentary
crying for resolution
for vengeance

Words
longing for freedom
unfettered by lust
wandering freely
unbridled

These unhappy words
yearned for life
and not some
mundane
calling

We are poetry they said
