Good Poet Bad Poet-Most Of Us Are Green Poets

Rating: 4.9

To draw a line
divide
contain
compartmentalise
give it a label
distinguish
what is ''suppose to be''
homogenises poetry
like packaged goods
in accord
with those self appointed
''cultivated''
whose sure assumption
makes clear
''some, just don't measure
up here''-
but here, is where
hearts are worn
exposed on sleeves
and vulnerable
steeped in wiled
oats sown
here, is where
the poets come
to explore minds
all artists writing
here, is where art
inspires
observed and absorbed
while unfolding
our own wondrous
voice within-
all green poets
all growing
upon this sacred
poetry ground
