I Pride Myself That In Poetry - Poem by Shalom Freedman
Telling my own inner Truth-
And that telling the Truth is in its way
What it really means
To live in and for Poetry-
Telling the Truth is also a kind of Game-
I say ‘this’
I contradict it with ‘that’
I laugh here I cry there
And Irony plays in whatever way it does -
And the Poetry is too a Game,
Flat prosy one- dimensional confessional
That does not justify being called Poetry at all.
