Susan Hawthorne #209 poets for poetry

poets for poetry
could be this gathering's slogan

poetry for poets
would be another way to say it

poems from poets
if you want origin stories

poets for poems
to give it a slight political turn

whatever your fancy one thing is agreed
poems taste better with food and wine


  1. Blame the passing train
    stirring memory and dust
    steel rails brother poet bending
    sister poet standing still
    while a train's bearing down
    god knows why with just
    half a percentage gain
    probably behind schedule
    and a few are wishing
    they could stop and listen
    to the poem of a poet's cough
    the health of a nation being
    such a complicated thing

  2. sums it up well! poetry as soul food
