One thing kills poets more than anything else
is being forced to review his skill.
that would be his own making death knell
when he has to stop writing to tell
whether or not his English swells.
He would spend countless hours
to look over syntax and grammar;
Things he wouldn’t care less,
and things his readers wouldn’t care more
except a bunch of poem critiques
who have not skill to appreciate poetry,
for their specialty is not to see
but to tear down poetic finess
in the name of technicality!
Can one be a picassonian poet?
