A Poet

02 Dec
"For me, it's like -
a poet is a vampire who,
discovering its nighty-clad incentive, 
drains the juice out of it into writing.

The poet's words
should be the blood of a muse sucked dry.

The poet's words 
will elucidate both
the flush of the first encounter
and the rebel-yell 
of a life metabolized into fonts."
(Brian P. Hodgkinson, 2021)
