Brief (Poem a day)

Cover Image

I don't write poetry often,

for I think it cheap.

So easy to write few, subtle words-

a descriptive, abstract diary.

But I think my literary snobbery has swayed,

and that opinion has changed.

After all, the masses are easily distracted.

Their minds move quickly-

like syllables, not chapters.

Do I wish to exhaust or be heard?

Evidently, my prior belief was absurd.
