Ars Poetica

The art of modern day poetry; a meditation on poetry and its power.

Poetry is like really good jazz
you hear when calling the power company.
It reminds you that you’re not the only one
whose life is on hold.
It’s a child’s understanding of grace.
It picks up voices that have fallen
or have forgotten how to fly.
It exists in the purgatory of your mouth
saying,
“Practice
Practice
Practice.”
