(excerpt from) diary of an anonymous poet

dream in free verse

be personificationist
and see humankind
in all things, converse
with those stones
and brick walls others
call inanimate

listen intently
for the first stirrings
of Spirit, in whatever
guise or shape such
stirrings should take
even at risk of appearing
to dislodge reason

be sure to indulge
the simple pleasures
of food, bed and good
company, this life is
tough enough without
privations falsely
called artistic

above all else eschew
awards and recognition
so as to be only paid
with the recognition and
reward writeful to
a defender of the
psych-idyllic realm.
