We Were Poets

We Were Poets

~Deana J. Tavares

(To: my fellow Joiner Institute writers)

We were just poets

Through the headscarves

And beards

The childhood fears

We were poets

From between the lines

And the pages



Brave and courageous

Just poets

Within word drenched rooms

Puddles converged

Energy consumed
