Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

A Poet's Home


Please tell me there is someplace
Someplace where
The words are not corrupted
Where the ego has left the building
Left the atmosphere
For the moment
Someplace
Where
The word stands
Investigating
Contemplating
The life
And the life in the word


In the word
All the joy
And the lust
The passion
And the power
The love
The humanity
Stands up through the word
For the word
Not the career chances
Or the ewwws if I say this poem
Or the possibility of being laid
Paid, praised dot dot dot etcetera
Somewhere
Someplace where
The craft is the mission and the mission is the pleasure
Please tell me there is someplace
Someplace where
I can
Just
Be
A
Fucking
Poet.
