What's A Poem

Poem By Richard Stoker

what's a poem? a dream no less
not a verse? yet it's more...
a soufflé turned out well?
a thrown honed pot? glazed and
fired to perfection not a 'second'?
a new experience? a shattering blow?
a chilling cold that runs you
through and through? yet it's more...
a coming together in the readers' mind?
some say it's a gift the first line
perhaps? yet it's more...
a poem is a pearl? ... but it's more ... it's more

Don'T Be Suspicious Of Me

Don't be suspicious of me -
I'm not a Red - I've made my Bed
I'm not a Green - I've got no Team
I do not Drink - I do not Drive
