Every Poem Is A Victory

Every Poem Is A Victory
By jack henry markowitz

Every finished poem
Is a victory
Over the soul killing system
That has been trying for decades
To kill
The poet
Inside every one of us.

So write, write
And write some more
Whether miracle
Cant or drivel.

Just a few more bars
A few more stanzas
And I really do think
We’ll finally
Have the bastards
On the run.
