a poet?

a poet, I?
or merely
deluded
when judged
by snobbish
Academia
one cannot be
a proper poet
without years of study
without published works
without knowing every inch
of poetic theory and meter
so I am not a poet
just a person
who writes words
in such a way
as may be
misconstrued
as poetry

  1. You know this a tension we share, it is just a matter of perspective really. nobody’s right nobody’s particularly wrong at least you lack the precise soulless approach and delivery that academics can produce.
