A Poem For A Poet

The most suffocating thing for a poet

is not criticism

or the ink running dry

but identity amnesia

forgetting

or losing faith in one’s ability

to articulate the ineffable

to resurrect the intelligible

we are scientists, magicians of words

unveiling, revealing

revelations

in tight, succinct

prose

no word

or letter

is wasted
