On Poetry and Culture Shock

The Wall Poems of Leiden

I like this poem because it is short and to the point. It says more than complete treatises on art.

The poet is a poem twenty four hours a day,
The poet is an alchemist who knows
how to turn the lead of everyday life into gold.
His poems speak for themselves.

Jotie T’Hooft.

Edited  to add: I didn't realise it was Valentines Day as I posted this. Consider it a love letter to each poet that shapes my time and my poetic language.
