A Year of Poems – Day 53

Would you recognize a poem
if you met him on the street?
Would you know him by his trash bag
or the rhythm of his feet?

If he stopped you would you answer
even though his words were mean?
Could you recognize his beauty
as his eyes tripped filled with gin?

If you can see a poem
in his tangled snake of hair,
then you can see the gold strands too
that are also tangled there.
