Blood can be a line of beauty

Blood can be a line of beauty
Blood can be a line of beauty
or a cuddled up ball of fire
it can be the reinstatement of
folly or the heart of make-do

Blood can be a silent worn
word or an unsilent norm cuddled
up beside the line of beauty
raking up the storm and its cousin

there are two types of poets
there are two types of poets:
one you listen

with the pen of your mouth
as if in thrall;

the goat of each masquerade
in suspension and

the beat of your inner beat
learning to learn;

and then there’s the one you
listen with the

mouth of your pen; as if thrall
is a masquerade;

as if learning is skill and
skill and nothing

more.

    Hmm, and a tiny pocket somewhere for the poet misfit, the unclassified, the unskilled and unlearnable? 🙂
