Peotry is a wonderful excercise

for those who's minds wonder

lacking the concentration

to write novels and lofty papers

A poet will describe the vomit on the sidewalk

a writer will detail how it got there

This is why I am a poet

I don't care how the vomit came to be

I care about what I see in it at that very moment.
