Reflections from a Spouse
By David Smith November 19, 2008
His poetry is trying as he reads from day to day;
Why can’t he do what’s practical as life gets in his way.
He writes of every colour and racial slurs to share;
Reflects the passion and the mood;
People as they care.
And so he brings to light emotion and the spark;
Hits the nerves of others; to pierce so very sharp.
His poetry is metaphors and similes so dense;
And half of what I understand makes not a lot of sense.
So I shake my head
Why people want to hear.
Yet reads with passion;
And thinks his words are clear.
