I Like the Words
I like the words they use to tell what a poem is
better than any poetry I've read.
Like: fragments, ghost, allusion.
I like the way my ribs move
when someone talks about storytellers;
It's a pride I taste more than during a story told.
A review says 'intricate' and 'masterful'
So I put the thing on a pedestal of stolen adjectives.
My crown jewel is 'aesthetic' and I own it, lying.
What is a creator without his critic?
Condemnation and commendation
mean more to me than original construction.
But then--poets are just the translation of Creation.
And never has a word of soaring perfection
surpassed the garden, fallen.
