Uniquely You


In poetry, you render from the gut -
Expository slut, the aim:
Cathartic legs apart,
Inviting all to penetrate
Your world;
A whore of individuality -
Your literary art ejaculating
From the riven heart -
Pumping, thumping, crying out
Upon the sleeve -
For that is what you do -
Uniquely -
Now believe.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
