THE RIGHT POEM

WHEN I’VE BEEN
RIGHT,
IT’S ALL MAGIC.
WHEN I’VE BEEN
WRONG,
IT’S ALL POESY.

IF I’VE HAD MY MORNING
COFFEE.
IF I’VE HAD MY AFTERNOON
NAP.
IF I’VE HAD MY SPACE AND
TIME,
THEN EVERYTHING IS RIGHT.

EVEN THE POEM.
EVEN MY DOUBT.
EVEN THE PAST.
IT’S ALL RIGHT.
IT’S ALL MAGIC.
IT’S ALL POESY.
