What Is A Poet

By    

What is a poet?
Is it someone that speaks in metaphors and oxymorons?
Saying things like, open secrets can be bitter sweet,
or we live in peace as we get our war on?
What is a poet?
Is it someone that puzzles together words in a rhyme
Or someone depicting words to make you remember
precisely that moment in time?
What is a poet?
Is it an artist that uses their words as the paint
brush to paint a better future?
Or maybe it's a writer putting together pieces
after a well written thesis during Covid all while
tending to children that are stuck to her like leaches?
What is a poet?
I'm afraid the definition is too complex.
But if you're a poet, during this quarantine is a
perfect time for your poetic skills to be flexed.
