Three short nonpoems


It is difficult to write about poetry

How it must be grand
to be worth something

It is poetry if it is about your life

And if it is about life,
then it is worth something


It does not matter if it is not perfect
What matters is I loved it enough to see it written


Fear defines our lives,
Defines all life

There must be something beautiful about fear --
It exists, after all
