April 19 – How to Be a Poet

At night keep your nose in books,

by day put pen to paper.

Keep your head in a fog

of descriptive metaphors –

as red as a pimple on a teenager’s face.

Imagine a room full of editors exclaiming

over your works.

Inhale inspiration.

Exhale for good measure.

Walk down the street as if

you were writing with your footsteps --

leave an imprint wherever you go.
