They dance naked in metaphors
speaking this - meaning that,
winding words into introspection.
Heads bent over a thesaurus prayer book
word artisans seek the holy grail of vocabulary
to eradicate the perception of recycled thought.
Under a lightbulb sky poets seek the blessing
of Bragi as poetry travels from mind to print
in a soul spill of imagery and imagination.
