(14/30) Octave

The Prompt for day 14: create a poem that deals with the poems, poets or other people who inspired you to write poems. The italicized lines are some of the people who inspired me…


The first poets
to inspire me thought
of master plans with
nuthin’ but sweat inside their hands

unafraid to mix
love and revolution
on the same color palette;

creating snake charmer stanzas
while doing what spring does with cherry trees

asking a thesaurus to become a machete
the moment a ball point pen touches
a fresh piece of cotton twill
stationery paper.

I can feel the city breathing, chest heaving, against the flesh of the evening

 
night resting like a ball of fur on my tongue.

Knowing in the end,
anything outside of poetry
I’ll only have, if it’s sweeter than my solitude.
