poems in 2012

what are poems in 2012

earth’s population 7 billion

countless self-published online poems

seeming excess

of words

seeming lack

of space

lingering myth

that only the privileged

get a place

but poems

are precious

revelations

of soul

and love

herald the days

try to describe

elicit

exhort

derive

conscribe

proscribe

infer

and reveal.

we poets will write and write!

we will shout from rooftops

or desks

prove to all

that poets are necessary dreamers

in a world struggling

to find its way.
