A Poet Should Be - Poem by Randy Resh

A POET SHOULD BE


A poet should be romantic as spring
chocolate and cherry
mellifluous honey
drinking day-lit blossoming

Yet a poet should be
suspicious jaded wary
deepest indigo sour wine poison
ice blister winter night scathing

A poet should be loving
beyond bewildering
passionate so jealously

A poet should be spiteful
boisterous unbecoming
belligerent as unseemly

A poet should ever enjoin
engage the reader
emphatic empathic
paving pathos

intimate as such
enduringly

    Some striking lines! You confound expectations, Randy!

    Yes, a poet should be spiteful boisterous unseemly -
    in other words, a real human being with all the faults
    and some of the glory!
