Iíve heard the talk
that poetry
is truth
poetry
is a revolution
to stand up
donít bow
until the curtain closes
donít bend at the knees

Iíve heard
ďthat Villon died for his wordsĒ
and
ďwhat have you done?Ē

Iíve tatooed my initials
on the face
of a star
outside my window

made tears
from a hundred
words or less

talked a bit of time
with the lonely

set my thoughts on fire
in a spark of feeling

maybe
like this poem
there is no epiphany
no truth
no death

just maybe
like this poem
poetry is plain and simple
a piece of me

i like the raw emotion and gut instinct of this poem ...
Reviewed by richard cederberg 3/2/2007
Good insight! Poetry certainly is, without doubt, a piece of the writer, simple or not.

Light and Wisdom ...
