Poets Don't Parse

by Darrell Collins

There is no better drug to soothe the mind.
Than ripping out a web of poetic rhyme.
We can go “all in” through contemporary art.
Spit it how we see it, without a word to parse.

With us, political correctness doesn't exist.
The unblemished truth will roll off our lips.
Getting away with what people wish they could say.
Occupying a realm between Earth and Space.

We pen it exactly how it immersed from the brain.
Not parsing a word, or editing a phrase.
Take advantage of what we can get away with.
Keep stirring the Gumbo, and giving them fits.
