Adriano Nunes: "Poetry" - to my dear friend, Australian poet Hamish Danks Brown (for his birthday)

"Poetry" - to my dear friend, Australian poet Hamish Danks Brown (for his birthday)

Poetry is
What it is not
It is light
It is another night
To fight
Against fixed spot
Against impossibilities
Poetry is hot

It burns
The careless and hurried bards
Why is everything so hard?
It hurts
Because it starts it all
Inaugurating several
Cosmos of multiple senses
In this gray world

Oh this we know and
They know it too -
The enemies of poetry,
Those who destroy
Hopes, dreams and simple joys.
What they do not know is
That poetry is stronger than
Their hate and their cruel plan.
