A Favorite-Poet-Page Poem by Walterrean Salley


I searched for a favorite
Poemhunter page,
But it was gone
Like a dismantled stage.

With its inspiration
And insight to share,
I could not find it
Anywhere.

Perhaps such poet
Never knew
How their works,
Upon review,

Was motivating,
Whenever read—
And so, they “threw
In the towel” instead.
