Poetic Faith~by Paul Lenzi



Poetic Faith


“Suspension of Disbelief” by Rick Ladd

we fellowship of fools
asleep in blind faith
born of lazy beliefs
a pernicious affliction
predisposing we headless
we heedless enablers
abetting the surrogate
customs of turpitude

it takes work to believe
what minds will not grasp
conscientious commitment
legs rooted like treetrunks
in rich moral soils
those are the stalwarts
the clear title heirs
to creeds of the poets

a muscular reading
without preconceptions
discovers the secrets
of verses arcane
intellectual liturgies
mapping the methods
of minds who create
different paths to the truth


“That willing suspension of disbelief for the moment,
which constitutes poetic faith.” – Samuel Taylor Coleridge
