Poem as Surrogate
by Odin Roark
With expression unchecked
Imagined ink yet to dry
The page fearful of touch
Find the eyes
Beneath which awaits the meaning
This frame that lives also as picture
One's fleeting first-person impulse
A captured inner focus shared
To the world's lenity
Every poet's temporary forever
