Best Poem of Brian Purdy

A Poem Is

A poem is admission
Of confusion
And being what it is
Excites derision;

Yet those who mock
Will see their words forgotten
While poems alter worlds
And swallow oceans

A poem may be hard
Or it may soften
Such blows as while alive
We meet too often

A poem is a voyage
Of discovery
On which we risk all chance
Of full recovery;

A poem is no display
Of erudition
No learned text that stinks
Of dead tradition

A poem is a brave
And human gesture
Dressed in mage's clothes
But still a jester;...

For Jim Purdy

A dog makes a difference.
I know this by experience
so am glad to hear
my brother,
whom I have never met
has a dog in his life
that is young and needs
much guidance.
In teaching we learn
