I understand
poets aren’t compensated
much…

Except for exposure.

Funny,
that is exactly what
we offer.
We expose our spirits,
our hearts and minds,
our thoughts on life.
We expose our husbands
and kids, or the horrors
of our lives. We expose
world events and history,
injustice and happiness,
myths and facts.
We bleed exposure
like other people
bleed blood.
We are the true
exhibitionists…

Anyone can expose a body,
few can expose
their souls.

Nice thought process! Well thought out and very true -- poets ARE undervalued and yet oh-so-needed to help catalyze thought and spark imagination and conversation... I think this passage is fantastic:
"we bleed exposure
like other people
bleed blood.
We are the true
exhibitionists…"
GREAT work, Erin!
