[tab id=1]What do Poets look like?
Please do tell.
You who seem to know
everything so well.

What do Poets look like?
When you can’t even convert
a few pictures into words.

And how can you tell?
You who don’t even know
how to express your own
thoughts and feelings

On paper

Do they have tired eyes
from reading too many books?

Or, are their fingers
covered in ink
from writing until the early
hours of the morning?

Please tell me
What do Poets look like?[/tab]
