Best Poem of Kyle Schlicher

Those Who Write Poetry

those who write poetry
do so,

even though there are
those who wonder
why bother?

we write even though
the odds are

no one will ever
take the time
to read
what we write.

let alone understand
what we choose to write

or even
the very reason
we must write it
in the first place

regardless
of all the above.

How To Bury Grief

i was in country
about four months before
the war got too close.

as we stood there
looking down
at what was once
our
friends
i learned
how to bury grief.

how to bury it deep,
deeper
and
deeper.

it worked every single time.

every
single
time.

(Chu Lai RVN 8-29-68)
