'No One Makes Money From Poetry'

'No one makes money from Poetry”

“No one makes money from Poetry
If you need Money get it somewhere else
If you live your life by poetry
Be rich from something else,
Or poor forever.
Or have a job on the side
Which is not on the side
Like Wallace Stevens

If you need money
Don’t give your life to poetry
Give your life to making money
Money and Poetry they are not made together.
