Are Poets Born Or Reborn - Poem by Robert Murray Smith

Are poets born as they like
to say, they being other
than me

well at seventy-three I was
a born again poet having
read a couple of poems

it is true that I really
tried to read three but
the last was too long

anyway, the rebirth through
my pulsating neuronic
fascinations

declared, it is time to write
on the
mind

quilling like a mad poet I have
now knocked out
over four thousand

of what are called poems, how
many more is
anyone's guess

as I have my head down and
my quill up, still a
newborn.
