Being a poet is just like being a stripper. We stand on stages, bare, naked, exposed; head, heart and soul. We let complete strangers, associates, friends and family see and feel parts of us we ourselves would normally tuck deep in far away dark places. We wear our heart on our sleeves, untailored and bare. We are real. We are love. We are pure. We are poetry. We are poets.
