What Do The Poets Know?

What do the artists know?

That their works—

forged from light, dark, sound, and/or words—

are metaphors for life.

That all of their psychic energy

applies to the fashioning of their art.

That if they are fortunate enough

to draw upon eternal forces,

their work may touch immortality.

That their work may or may not

carve out a political message,

but that if it does

it is nearly always

about exacting justice.
