REMAINDER

DON’T     REMAINDER   ME

Stanley Kunitz said: Poetry is mythology

telling stories of the soul   It’s adventures

in time  & in history

 

The soul dives into a body   builds a house for

an Ego   Jettisons said Ego   Soul now a fugitive

Free of the squalid human   Until the next dive

 

Nothing useful rhymes with motherlode   Our

adjectives cloying   Our clichés grating    But

dare  hire a poet     if your soul needs saving
