some philosophical thoughts about poetry reading

What I know

is that the poet

stands on the stage

while the audience awaits

for the poet to read his piece.


After that, he goes down

applause from the crowd;

the poet’s ego is boosts once more,

really digging the scene,

maybe seeing something bigger

during those times, i’m not sure…


I ain’t sure because in my case, it’s

different…readings are done inside the

bathroom and it is practiced everyday or

while lying on the bed simultaneously


writing and taking notes and ideas…

no applause no cheers from the crowd

because there is no crowd ——–

the crowd is the ceiling to fix my eyes on

at night when words and verses meanders

inside  my headspace.


from ” the book of envy “
