Poetry By Definition

Vintage Words


Pure and without substance

or so pretty the images wither?

Clear and see-through

as if the words were invisible.


Truth is the provenance

of philosophy and poetry

is the proof of being

but to sing the trueness

of words is like a mosquito

playing bass; hard

to imagine and very

hard to sell.
