Poetry is romantic, despotic sheer magic

Thunderously calm it creates ripples across hearts

Tearing people down and up in wild ascension

To what they never imagined to have sought


Poetry is magic, deep, dark, romantic… piffle

Flowery, feminine, gay & outdated


But old worldly

Ancient dancing emotion

Made flesh from thought & ink


Whether it rhymes

Or not


Poetry is magic


Whether it’s Shakespeare

Or Bukowski


Kings & Queens

Or horses & bums

Flowers & romance

Rape, & death


It’s all poetry

– And it can all be

Some sort of magic
