Poet: Canary in the Coalmine


Look — smack me with energy
And I go right down!
Just like any novice
Just like any clown

But when I do get back up
The thing is, my dear,
Everything’s more obvious
To the next one comes through here


Among us, poets are not paid. The poet/editor of this website, being physically disabled, lives at a fraction of her nation’s poverty level. Become a patron of the fine arts at: https://www.gofundme.com/are-you-a-patron-of-the-arts
