Written at WRITE ON!

Written at WRITE ON! is a series of articles written by participants during a WRITE ON! workshop, and shared with the community.

This was written by Hy Carrel during Kind Fools’ fifth WRITE ON! workshop.

A Poem Is

A poem is a core
of a thought,
An idea, stripped of chocolate,
just nougat.

A poem is feeling,
Less thinking,
Less a cat meowing
Than one purring.

A poem is complete.
It does not deplete.

Context and explanation
Are like a vacation
From a job
That embodies the core of us.
They are nice,
but for a poem,
They are superfluous.
