the poet
is a thief
of fire

by frank andrick

be a poet
entails more than
the writing of poems.
It demands a commitment
to live and die with great style
and an even greater sadness.
To wake up each morning

and to know that it can never

and yet to be convinced that this suffering,
this sensitivity carries its own unique
reward ...
I want to be
the Hierophant
of an unapprehended
