My interest is really in this
could it be a hairy person
or master of Shakespearean words?

Must he know the life in prison
like Chris Abani for instance
or the famous white bearded man?

Maybe complexity makes a good poet
or maybe the master of imagery?

My interest is in what makes a good poet,
a good bard, a good muse, a good poetess
I know the renaissance will credit themselves
I'm sure the free verses will raise their hands
the traditionalist sijo, tanka
and haiku moguls will raise hands
claiming a good poet
be candid
to possess an editor
does it make a good poet?

To share poems with friends
does it make a good poet?

To have a published anthology with catchy title
does it make a good poet?

What makes a good poet?
