Poetry is the Risk of Freedom a #poetryport poem #writingcommunity

Poetry is risk
verse running into
                  danger
unwanted events
  spilled on
            paper
As probability of
poetry puddles in
human misery
Expectations of hope
grounded in fear
objective becomes
subjective
prosody of broken
words
in rebel poets
18 whiskeys deep
"mad bad, dangerous to know"
        Poetry spits in the face of
probability of errors
     embraces the sin in syntax
A primary prevention
of the human condition
     slipping      into the     mundane
sorrow found in the wind
and rain of Autumn
soaking souls of
history
"You are a man.
Isn’t this reason enough to die?
poetry is freedom
