This is Why We Write Poems

“Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason.”



Insistence on logic and reason

whips flesh, warps souls

until the balm of poetry

closes gaping sores,

straightens the soul

back into fullness with images

birthed by pulsing intuition

through a view of the world

hopelessly hopeful and true

in a way that cannot, must not

be proven

or disproven.
