Eat poems, drink them

MICHAEL DOM

Eat poems,
Drink them.
At first
You meet it
It is a high feeling
Your heart soars upon it
Your mind races towards it
Your hand reaches out for it
To catch a fleeting thought
To capture lightning bolts!
To clasp at fleeing breath?
Gasp! But no! Suck it in!
Swallow it to your belly
Let ferment, foment fully
Let the fleet feat stand still
Let lightning come to earth
Let words be your breath
Make it a deep feeling.
Then let it speak.
