Heart Poems (poem) 

Heart Poems

I don’t think anyone positioned
in high places will buy this.
All this talk
of love, devotion.
Even “heart” slipping in
now and again.

And, as for the others,
the ones who
do not write poetry,
but who resonate
like tiny bells
when they hear
what they like,
the ones who unashamedly
paste Rumi
to their bathrooms walls,
or scribble Mary Oliver
the living room floor,
they really won’t care
what the cognoscenti
have to say,
what prizes are dispensed
among the
favored ones,
writers whose rhetoric is sublime,
whose outlook
lives in the shadow
against the wall.
