A good poem

a good poem is like a cold beer when you need it,

a good poem is a hot turkey sandwich when you’re hungry,

a good poem is a gun when the mob corners you,

a good poem is something that allows you to walk through the streets of

a good poem can make death melt like hot butter,

a good poem can frame agony and hang it on a wall,

a good poem can let your feet touch China,

a good poem can make a broken mind fly,

a good poem can let you shake hands with Mozart,

a good poem can let you shoot craps with the devil and win,

a good poem can do almost anything, and most important

a good poem knows when to stop.
