poetry is a dream to me
nothing needs to be strained
words flow like water over stones
on their way to meaningless

poetry should be so easy
Sunday morning comics
comfortable, soothing, and safe
but poetry reflects life

poets are not cold machines
writing without feelings
the truth can be painful in words
not capture pain, but release
