Poets do not work. They sail the seas of boredom, and pursue their idle journeys towards such freedoms deemed too poor.
They never seek shore of success, but instead sink fast like shipwrecks – forgotten but drowned through silence, submerged as our relics lost.
They are victorious purely in mystery – plundered only by feeling, and revealed as dangerous expressions when discovered on ocean floors.
They exist for beauty to fade, and age to indulge their meaning, to preserve how God or muses dwell where ghosts swim chasing fame.
Do not fear this brine. For praise is much more lethal. Like dry land, mere shadows of wisdom, proving money an obvious threat.
