Poet Lost

by Miguel Alverio

Whatever happened to the days of
“Damn, you nice, Poet!!”
To the days of
“Keep up the fight, Poet!”
To the days
Texts at 1:00 AM
“Don’t let them put out your light, Poet!”
Trickled down to
The days of
Poet gone, so now they don’t even write Poet?
But, I’m more like
It’s aight Poet
Give them their thousand days
And thousand nights Poet
Get your body and mind right, Poet
Cause if a caged bird could sing
Then a bird with clipped wings
Could take flight Poet!!!!
Poetry lost
Due to a higher cost
For a lower cause
Poetry lost
But poetically accounted for
