A Poet Has No Honor

It truly can be said
that a poet
has no honor within
the circle of
his family, friends
and church
whom all too often
ignore what
his fingers have to
write much
less what his mouth
has to say
unhonored by those
closest to
him it is those round
the world who
read each and every
word of the
secret life his fingers
are leading
who listen to his words
of joy and woe
who truly honor him
