New Poetry by MTC Cronin


Oh great poet
There seems to be something you do not know
Otherwise why so many laments
Though artfully concealed
You have made from words?
Shall I tell you what you are missing?
There is only one thing
When someone mistakes it
Anything is bound to happen
Including these things
You have been forced to write
