Poets Speak Longer March 30, 2007

Filed under: Poetry — jojanoski @ 11:51 am

Based on the philosophical statement:
Cogito ergo sum, by Descartes

I think, therefore I am.



Poets Speak Longer

Inside the dusty cauldron
that passes for my mind
a picture show is playing
Jo’s Song, the annals of time.


In that fog I’m always young,
a chick of great importance.
Making heads turn, moving on,
exuding life and portent.


Truth be told, I’m young no more
On the outside I am gray.
But inside I’m full of fire
Eager for another day.


I’ll be here long after life,
speaking of my unique time.
Lingering words reciting
my days in rhythm with rhyme.
