Poets (poem by me)

Where do poets go
to get their inspiration?
Their souls fly high and low
reaching blindly in the air
for coarse emotions floating there.

Poets capture the feeling
the reader’s been concealing,
shelters them like wild savages,
tailors them into fitting words,
instead of untidy blurbs.

Show kindness to your poet,
for serving your feelings like a feast
and presenting them all tasty and neat,
but even if you don’t want to
the poet is glad to serve you.

….Then he began washing his disciples’ feet and drying them with the towel he was wearing. —John 13:5
