Poetry Knows

Written by: James Kosiorek

Poetry Knows

Where poet goes
when poet needs
A line of prose

Which word comes best 
on top of rest 
before its born 
in womb of next

Where uncooked prose
in little groves
sits in wait 
by little stoves  

Poetry screams 
in pains of birth
For now as words 
it now has worth
 
it likes
it would
it rather be
before its time
not known to me

Where life songs sing in melody
and pollinate the what will be
