I Am A Poet

I am a poet, I can inhabit
Any world I choose
I don’t need an overnight bag
For a trip to Betelgeuse

I am timeless, I am eternal
The universe is my home
All I have to do is sit at my desk
And let my imagination roam

In my left hand I hold the sun,
The moon and all the stars
In my right, the Earth, Venus,
Jupiter, Saturn and Mars

My life here on Earth
May be an interminable chore
But in my other, imagined life
I wander, I fly, I soar

I can conjure up a black hole,
A supernova, or a meteor shower
Because I possess a poet’s mind
A thing of magical power
