To Be A Poet - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
to be a poet delirious
is to write trivial serious
neurosis word fetish psychosis...
it is good to live
within nets of words
in a poet's world...
intelligence mania narcissism
hypochondria pathological witticism
enthusiasm excited writ speel denies criticism..
subliminal imput is marginal or critical
word flow is differential managed mystical
purpose driven mania pitiful to mastered exceptional...
poet's are players
word mirage slayers
rainbow pot of gold seekers...
