Painted in the Steam

 

The Best Poems

The best poems are etched
as ballads on the delicate flesh
of rose petals or histories
on the brittle parchment

of October’s late leaf.
Some appear as braille
on a hornet’s wing
or are painted in the steam

rising from a hot cup of tea.
Others are fathomed
on a dragon’s meaty skin,
in the weave of a troll’s tangled hair,

and forged upon a sword’s iron
brandished to discover
each creatures’ breath and blood.
