A Gallery of Poets

Ahh a gallery full of poets
chairs have been hired
for which a small fee is required
artists will sidle about appreciating
but poets sit back and think of english
scan the rows ahead
poet, poet, partner, poet
do only poets listen to poetry?
its all preaching to the perverted
but still
facing the audience I can see
that more have arrived
poet, partner, poet
and the neat rows of hired chairs
have petered out
two office blacks on castors
a cash desk stool
askew near the door
one small folding baroquery
with leopard print
and a heart shaped back
the perfect place to perch
and admire a poem
