Essence - Poem by Leslie Alexis

Little length
Builds strength,
The birds and
Bees
Seem to favor
And savor,
Short and
Sweet,
More than long and
Neat.
Poetry
Takes no time
For history.
Its brevity
Brings grief
To me,
And I
Being imperfect
Resort to
Put my thought
To ink
As I am
Forced
To think.
To compress
My graphite
Into diamond,
Sweet.
