“As a poet…”

As a poet…

I would just like to think

that that was how you saw me;

amongst all the other things that I am.

As a poet…

I perceive that my words,

Which are drawn screaming from me,

do have some little meaning to you.

As a poet…

I know that you shut down

When I have poetry “voice”

and you focus upon your navel.

As a poet…

I do hate the trite phrase

‘As a poet…’ it riles me,

and I do not see myself as one.

As me…

I write poetry,

for me;

but, you can read it,

if you like,

for free.
