To the poem born

We are poems ourselves
conceived from emotion.

We are all born poets
yowling or uttering

our brutal stages of advance.
Dazed from the drop

we find our voice, or not;
From there, images flock

like birds of Assisi
or flail as spoiled pigeons would.

ah, we are so diverse
like the consonants and vowels
that make our verse.

I like all d them birds in your poem, even the scavenger, cranky, downtrodden ones from the public commons.
