Brief (Poem a day)

Document
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.
