Poetry by Christene Zupan


Poetry in life
Poetry in death
Poetry in spite
All the wicked days ahead

Poetry in water
Poetry in song
Poetry is the latter
To which we dont belong

Poetry in faces
Poetry in hand
Poetry in places
Of which we dont command.

Poetry in ink
Poetry on pages
Poetry in sinc
Throughout the golden ages

Poetry in mind
Poetry on tongue
Poetry is blind
To which I have become.

Christene Zupan
