Young Poet

DoubleU = W

flipping through the digital

pages of a website dedicated

to poetry, I see a gem that

thoroughly catches my eye:

a “young” poet is someone

who is short of 50 years old

it took me with a start since

at 49 I don’t consider myself

to be “young” and I don’t

include myself in the “aged”

still, I wonder, how can I

be considered “young” as

if I’m a junior poet, an

inexperienced individual

I’ve seen, done, lived,

the whole nine yards but

editors will apparently see

me as a “young” poet

imagine that – me…young
