Poets Brief

Folder: 
Vintage Words

.
Writers have extensive

vocabularies. Of course this

is not true for the novice.

Growth is the goal. 

.

The fewer the words,

the tighter the verses, 

and the less interesting

the poem.

.

No that’s not what I mean.

Run on sentences that say

very little are to be avoided,

like big words for the sake

of big words and egos. Scratch

big egos for vocabulary

choices; use egos to write

and post.

.

Yes, conciseness is the rule 

and the objective. No 

subjectivity is necessary.

Few will be able to live inside

those boundaries. Too small

for the needs of emotionalism.

.

In future, I promise to be brief,

but be warned; I seldom keep my

promises about writing less.
