Did I Write That? - Poem by Fred Babbin

I believe that a good imagination can fight reality.

Did I write that?
I don’t believe it.
I am not that good.
But
The mind is better than the brain.
Iambic pentameter beats reality.

    Poemhunter is slow for me today, but your poem was worth the wait. Great take on the creative process. I often ask that question as I read things I have written previously. Did I write that? (Report) Reply

    Oh yes, Fred, I agree - poems come about through something other than rational thinking. (Report) Reply
