poem writing

abstract thoughts
pouring out and tumbling over
skipping on top of the concrete
making new shapes and colors
and new ways to see things.
taking existence
and making it more real,
using white chalk
to bring out the blue in her eyes,
staring into the west
and finding the lost compass,
molding old things
so that they can be understood
in a new way.
This is what it is to write a poem.
