She was told,

“You are a poet.”

She wrote,

“If only words could make it true.”

I laughed,

because of course,

only words

can

make it true.

Is there any other way

to make a poet?

  1. Yes, words do make it true!

    Yep. A simple truth. When young people ask me how to become a writer the answer I give is simple: write.

  3. Love this one! Works for authors too!

  4. You might possibly be well on your way of making another O’henry……! Funny poem with a very DOH! twist!

  5. It would be hard to make it happen with hieroglyphics, or pictograms. πŸ˜›

  6. The definition of a self-fulfilling prophecy, no?…

    This post made me chuckle. Of course. Only words. πŸ™‚

    P.S. I know your reply above wasn’t for me, but “The Arrival” is one of my absolute favourites. I hope to teach it in class one day. πŸ™‚
