The Game of Poetry

March 5, 2017

Poetry is like a game
The poets are the designers
The readers are the players

 

Poetry is like a game of Scrabble
Trying to find the right words
Words that someone else hasn’t already said

 

Poetry is like a game of tag
Trying to touch the lives of people
But not all people want to accept

 

Poetry is like a game of chess
Making moves
Exposing what we did not see

 

Poetry is like a game of truth-or-dare
Telling the unbearable truth
Daring to do the impossible

 

Poetry is like a game of hide-and-seek
The poet hiding life in words
The reader seeking to live
