What is a Poet?

by yokomolotov

 

the poet is

the divine translator

 

the soothsayer

 

and momma bird of the

world- of culture

 

chewing the tough

parts

 

and feeding the

chicks

 

the world on her

tongue, demystified

 

the job has to be

selfless

 

the work an

honest gift

 

otherwise those lines

are only doggerel

 

and sour

to the ears
