You are herethe poet, taught

the poet, taught

By jamesaguiar - Posted on 26 January 2010

teach a poet?
make him write?
some can be taught to dream
if first taught sleep:
then their minds wander
going here and there in wonder
losing all control
rolling on and on.
No machinery gave them this
no conjuror's pot
smoking imbued ideas,
just the workings of lonely brains
doing what grey matter does alone:
no nugget of reality
just words together
glued by thought.
is it "good?"
who knows or cares.
in purpose's end value is lost
and reason melts away.
