POETRY IS NOT… by Kukogho Iruesiri Samson

poetry is not a petal
it is a flower in bloom
red rose, cocky bud
thorns and leaves

poetry is not a flower
it is a garden in bloom
bloody orchid, saintly daisy
and the Devil’s black Rose

poetry is not a garden
it is the Earth, her people
fighting, loving
birthing and dying

poetry is not the Earth
it is our universe
gravity and space
you and me
