Boutique words on white page,
Invited or strangers
Noisy or chimed,
Ruffled or rhymed,
(of) novels they are -
trespassing, travelling, trolling.

Poems are virgins, men.
Useless in its property,
read and loved in shy lights
by humble eyes.

Silence is an amazon -
Deep, masculine, unsaid.
Like a woman it touches.

Poets die -
They depart on their four-legged sabbatical cot
as autumns come and winters stay.
Let frail leaves and dried ink count
unwritten poems.
