What Is A Poem? - Poem by John Shea

An intricate tale
Or a story that failed

A bird in the sky
Or an addict that got high
An intimate refrain
Emptied from my brain

So go slow my heart
Or feel the dagger
Or the dart
As it sinks into senses
Senses without fences
That just went bust

A child and a flower
A smile in a summer shower

Poetry is you and me
From sea to shining sea
