Interview With A Poet Isolationist

INTERVIEW WITH A POET-ISOLATIONIST

(Old Fool)

I.

Ok

I’m here.

I will address each question in order and then

Like all good politicians

Forget exactly what you’ve said.

I’m really too old for all of this shi …

What?

I just want to drink coffee and whiskey, read books

And write, nothing else

But nothing,

And nothing else

But words

In silence. 

Alone.

Do I have any advice?

No.  None. Nothing

Except this;

Old words

Names

Abandoned

Archaic

And dead

To the world

New Gods

Mythologies

Waiting to be born

So pick up your pen,

Leave me alone

And write.

II.

If death is like a sonnet

Life is a haiku

And the poem?

The poem is beauty & magic

Said with our last fading breath

Love, words floating off

Into the abyss.

And in only a few short syllables?

Your heart

Your voice

The universe

The end

That’s all

That’s it
