to be a poet
To be a poet is to be louder , bigger
Than men! Biting as who kisses!
It is like being a beggar and to give whoever be
King of the Kingdom of Behind and Beyond Pain!
It is to have of a thousand wishes the splendor
And do not even to know what to want !
It is to have here deep inside a flaming star,
It is to have claws and wings of condor!
It is hunger, thirst of Infinite!
By elmo, the golden satin mornings .
It is to condense the world into a single cry!
And is to love you, like that, madly .
You being soul and blood, and life in me
And saying this singing it to everyone!
