The realm called poetry

Is this poetry
Sophistry, sorcery
Or trickery

Am I a poet
Gloat or not

A friend calls me one
How am I one

Thin bold line
Sanity and Insanity
Subject and object

Deep, deep
Inner struggle for
For perfection
This answered question
Gravely Wells up
Is the created work
Complete and whole
Or deplete
With gaping hole

Burning awareness
Piercing eyes
And funnel ears
Emanate like florescence
From silent audience
Realm of endlessness
Enveloping a poet in in
Perpetual consciousness
