Poems Breathe



Like poets
poems need to breathe
publishers jail them
in small boxed columns
poems die like poets
they need to breathe


[The idea for this poem was born from a discussion (with my friend ‘A’) on how poems are published in small columns. ‘A’ helped me ‘tighten’ the poem.]

  1. Someone said that poets and pigs are appreciated only after they die. Nice work by the way – you have managed to say so many things in just six lines. Keep it up.
