What Does A Poet Do?

I salvage truth from the wreckage of existence ,

I repair the broken things tossed aside by those

in too much of a hurry ,

I perform triage on the wounds

nothing and no-one else can ever ” heal ” ,

I restore justice to those ideas ,

longings and ideals which Laws failed to protect

and Powers that be have abandoned ,

I turn into words the unspoken yearnings

of a cosmos stymied by its own grandeur.
