Poems do not matter

Written by: Shishir Gupta

Poems do not matter
matters is what you mean
what are your intentions
and what you mean
I rummage your poems
not for their beauty
of structure
of flow
of words
of craft
of art
but for the hidden meaning
that you always reserve
and hit it with a lot of preserve
poems can wait
but your intentions do not
they change like overnight
and I simply cannot cannot afford
to let them slip by my sight.
