The Crazy Ones

Here's to the dreamers
The artists
And lovers
Here's to the crazy ones
The poets
And writers
Let's make our mark for the better

Iron Words

The Gods
Of poetic destruction
Linger in the twilight
Of poetic creation
Ready to obliterate
The noblest of cobblings
From weary-eyed poets
Ill-suited to defend
Fledgling works of art
That dare to be bolder
Than intended
Or allowed
But if the Words are mighty
They survive
And flourish
Becoming more brilliant
Than imagined
Forged in the furnace
Of a sacred place
To resonate
Boundlessly
