If we read nothing in a poem,
But then brought little to the reading,
Does the problem lie with the poem?
Is this a concern for the poet?

As a writer of poems is a poet,
A person, someone to compose a reading
Others will share, a fair-to-middling poet,
Writes another philosophical poem:

Which came first? The poet, as the poem
Could not know its first reading,
But through the Poet’s pen. Each poem
Is but a portion of a moment with a poet.

If I could read as if I were a poet,
Whose narrative frame of image reading,
Interpretations of a more observant poet,
I might hope to compose a better poem.
