Poetry Is

By Frederick Foote

Poetry Is

Sometimes
poetry
seems
to be:

A hammer, a stiletto
Pretentious, modest
A mummer, a scream
Propaganda, the gospel
Fucking and sucking
Gorging and fasting
Ducking and dogging
Slick and slimy
Profound, profane
Soulful, Senseless
Ass kicking, name taking
Soft days, sick nights
Hallow ground, wasteland
Nigger ways, white rights
Blind insight
Wasted words
Tidy turds
Null, void
Dead
And
Risen
Again
