A Good Poem

is like a bullet that goes
straight to the heart

life and death on the line

immortality
but a short breath away.

A poem either grabs you, or it doesn’t. You can feel a good poem immediately, as it touches the heart. And it stays with you forever. Good writing.
This is definitely 'a good poem' Laurence. Kind regards, Justine.
