Arm the Poets by Keith Burton

Poet Bio

You don’t want to face
Us army of authors with
Inky phalanges and hearts that
Pump too much.

You don’t want to be
Reminded that each skeleton
Houses love and innocence and
Fragility.

You don’t want to hear
The simple truth that we’re more
Alike than not, regardless of
Recent borders.

You don’t want to arm
The poets. We pierce your
Soul, lay bare your schemes, and
Won’t abide casualties.
