THE POETRY HYPOTHESIS


THE POETRY HYPOTHESIS

All poetry is viewed as hypothetical,

To suggest otherwise would be heretical…

‘Though some toe the line

Pretty closely o’er time,

We write by a code most ethical.

-

It can be a matter of “who with”

To share the work of your gift…

Avoid certain kinds

Reading between lines,

Making assumptions about who’s the “sith”.

-

Mixing fiction with fact is okay,

It is ART, after all, to get away…

From a strict biography

Strive to write it lawyer-free,

One can assume it’s not personal display!

-

But as I think I’ve written before,

Perchance truth slips in the door…

Then share carefully

With only those you see,

As worth trusting what you implore.
