The Thought of Poetry

All you need:

Pour it from your mind,
Feed it to the pen –
Ready to write?
No, not yet.

Filling its files with imagery and
squeezing the metaphors out of life -
Imagine that.
Personifying the perfect and
imperfect into a persona.
Mixing memories of red and
dreams of blue
to construe
the fact that
I knew you
is now

Black ink

Carrying the bittersweet baggage
called Blues.

Glide it through the point
but the point is poetry -

to bleed from the mind and
be stained with words.

All you need - the thought of poetry.
