Poets Like Me


There are none left.

They broke the mold. Took

the shards and scattered

them in many bodies

of water.


There used to be poets

like me everywhere, but they

died and left no traces,

no poems, no notes. So,

I am the last poet. There

are no more like me

on the old poetry tree.







Author's Notes/Comments: 

's been a while since I wrote an ego piece. Outrageous is the lair where poets reside periodically. Maybe not the lsast poet, but the last something or other assuredly. :D slc

Very true !!!! you are yourself ... an only one


Your Words

Your words like drizzle

Sometimes truth

sometimes magic

Beauty of language

Different from sciences

You answer questions

But ask too many

In your patterned words

Seasons may come

Time may flow

From this site

Never ever go

 Never ever go
