Listening to Poets Talk
Artists' Group, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, 1912
is that poets turn mystics
when they talk about their craft,
describing poetry as life and light,
as miles above and beyond
all other forms of artistic expression
and as the very thing
and distinguishing it from the beasts.
And that's when I wonder
if perhaps poet is another word for charlatan.
