A Sketch

At the BYU AML poetry reading. Jon brought up a really neat idea. Just as at art galleries they often display incomplete sketches, why not read poem fragments? The raw material of the art, not yet developed but that you can see the essence behind. So here's something that came to me tonight while writing something completely different:

Ah, to be a poet!
To work away the afternoons
Studying the constellations of humanity
Refluxing the laughter of the soul
And finally
Distilling the smell of green

Whoever thought a poetry easy
Has never tried
