how to be a poet

 


never wave the white †
flag of sanity.  

when you enter a room,  
be the odd person out  

...and when you leave,  
give them something †
to talk about.  

when they think they  
have defined you,  

change the narrative †
of your work.  

when they think they  
have cornered
you,

laugh,  

knowing that you have †
the key to unlock any †
cage at the tip  
of your  
pen.
