I Once Went Looking For A Poet

I once went looking for a poet

Greater than Bukowski’s dead ghost

Pouring out a splash of scotch

Dreams of the distant Western Coast

The classics left me feeling passé

Champing at the bit for a place to belong

Needing the real, raw, avant-garde

I’ve finally realized, you’ve all been here all along!

I came to the realization recently that my favorite poets are among us here on WP. We may never get rich or famous from our words, but I adore this community we have built. Thank you all for sharing your words, thoughts & lives with me. I am a better person for it. 💚🍀😀
