When it is quality you seek,
Avoid asking me to speak.
While I give my rhymes a tweak
Their insight is typically weak.
The actual fact, you see
Is that I write, not read, with glee.
It’s the failing of my art, while free
The focus, mainly out, not in to me.
I hope that I will appreciate poetry which I get the chance to see. I enjoy what I do encounter, but I admit, I do not subscribe to any poetry publications, nor do I visit book stores to buy or sit for readings… A failing.
For me, poetry is more a case of word sound, usually as rhyme. I don’t seek out poetry to read. Others have a much better grasp of the metaphor structure which fills what I see as the best sort of poetry to. I think of my work as ditties, at best.
