Message In A Bottle


Message In A Bottle

They say

The Poet

Is as only as

Good as

The Poem

But this

Is not a poem

Creating words, worlds

Out of love and destruction

Drawing primitive images

From memory, the darkness

And the light

So no

This is not a sonnet

This is not a poem

Or words written out by

The hand out humanity

Written out by the

Hand of hope

This is a poem

This is the voice of every single

Poet and single every waking life

Sending out small ships

From shorelines

Messages in bottles sent

Out unto the oceans

Out unto the seas

Out unto the world

And out among the stars

A prayer written for

No one no God

But the poem

And you
