The Task of the Writer: Poetry

Under the spell of subtle passion,
words can seem to trip 
over themselves like drunks,
hiccuping with brimming glasses
while singing poetry to indifferent skies

And despite all this,
 it is the task of the Writer
to rearrange these linguistic symbols 
into a full-bodied image 
that can seduce a reader 
with Literature's tantalizing embrace.
