A Piece Of Writing In Process

Once the Poet is done psychically with his or her craft

With the vernacular of his or her masterpieces

It’s the role of the readers to add mentally missing pieces

Parts, ideas, images, a few words and a sophisticated shaft

To mechanize, modernize or upgrade the messages

A poem is, of course, a piece of writing in process

It’s a bubbling melting pot, where many things are amiss

For many logical or purposeful reasons and for excuses

Which are existentially beyond the scope of countless texts

Poets are generally perplexed and write under pretenses or pretexts.
