there is a corner in another realm where poets go to die leaving their ashes at the threshold poets cross as energy and light they sit with pen in hand in a parisien-style café and recite their latest poem for macarons and latte they gather there and mingle juggling rhymes and metaphors they craft their poems lovingly scatter them to the winds so they may fall to us as snowflakes AP: 1st place 2021 Submitted on November 25, 2020 for contest WHERE TO WE POETS GO? sponsored by SILENT ONE - RANKED 2ND

Ah, this is a 1st place winner in my book--and how sweet to sit in a cafe all days drinking cappuccinos and eating pastry and never gaining weight ! The ending has a nice haiku like feel to it....
