The Minor Poet


They told him he had a cosmic side,
that in his seriousness lay laughter,
that he was a combination
of what he found in books and made up
because it sounded good,
that he wasn't what he was
and vice versa.

'If they know that much about ME,
the more they know,
the more major a poet must be.'

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
