    Explaining poetry

    How can I ever explain poetry?
    To a child it would be easy
    Eenie minee minee moe
    Catch the monkey by the toe

    Jack and Jill
    Went up the hill
    To get a pail of water
    Is a poem easily understood by
    A child

    But to an adult
    How can I ever explain poetry?
    Can I explain it with a straight
    Look in the eye
    And I will tell him
    Poetry Is looking a person straight in the eye

    Yes you have only one more day to live?
    Can I explain it to him
    Like I have a gun and point it straight to his head
    And say
    Yes poetry kills and it kills you in a minute
    And for free?

    Or can I explain poetry to him
    Like I am on the tenth floor of this building
    And I tell him I am so problematic
    And all I have to do is
    Jump and kill myself
    And he would be there
    To tell me
    Life is beautiful
    There is reason to live
    That I am loved
    That many people still care
    That I have a mission
    That I have lots of good things to do
    That this world has meaning
    That I am the child of this universe
    That I am no less than the trees and the stars and that by all means
    I have the right to be here

    That poetry can save
    That poetry is one saving person holding one back to his senses
    that poetry is hope, love, kindness
    it has no word for hate
    it does not kill
    or enslave
    or annihilate
    Poetry is a decision
    Not to jump.
    That is poetry to me
    And as an adult he must understand. read more »

    My Poetry, My Treasure

    The time I deny the world, to my poetry I freely give,
    The most sensitive secrets I hide from my family,
    In the nucleus of my poetry I joyfully hide.
