If I were a poet in love I would mix those taboo

MM: I don't know how I got into that habit, but I think it's important. If I were a poet sending things out, I wouldn't want them to be in circulation. But nobody cares because there are simultaneous submissions. That's a tough thing to respond to. I have sympathy for those who send multiple submissions, but it's a reprehensible practice. It's forced upon poets who don't want to wait. So I think it's the editors who encourage that by keeping things for so long.

If I Were A Poet Poem by Michelle Chargualaf - Poem Hunter

If I Were A Poet. Poem by Albert Wong - Poem Hunter

If I were a poet,
I will send my words to high space;
And among the stars together;
No sound on earth.
The dust did not end up,
For the Chinese language speaking,
Long as the Chinese flying wing.
Take place there, saying in the poem.
To let the world singing;
Height to place gone;
May be riding rainbow,
Or floating in the Moon,
By the star among stars and go.
I will drift in the world.
It was all of my processes.

Rudy Francisco: “if i were a love poet” | Interant Voyages

If I were a rich man, yeah
I'd spend every dime
just to prove to you
that I want you to be mine

If I were a poet
I'd write lots of beautiful poems
the world would come
crawlin after my poems
to express my love to you darlin'
oh but I

I'm an average guy
and I don't know how to show you, show you
I'm an average guy
and I don't know how to tell you, tell you
that I love you
that I love you

If I were a beggar
I would spend out a cold night everyday
and I would get down on my knees
and I'd beg for the right words to say, yeah yeah
If I were a clown
I'd paint me a real sad face

oh just to get your attention darlin'
just seein' maybe
maybe you will look my way
oh

but I
I'm an average guy
and I don't know how to show you, show you
I'm an average guy
and I don't know how to tell you, tell you
that I love you
that I love you

I said
I'm an average guy
and I don't know how to show you, show you
I'm an average guy
and I don't know how to tell you, tell you
that I love you
that I love you
that I love you
that I love you

If I were a poet, I would wake up in the morning and write as I sip my coffee while crashing at my older ex-lover's place.

LYRICS:
If I were a poet,
I would write a sonnet.
It would say 'I love you,'
your name would be on it!

If I were a farmer,
I'd give you a bunny.
If I had a beehive,
you would get free honey.

If I were a baker,
you could have a cruller,
If I were a painter,
choose your favourite colour!

If I had some diamonds,
I give you a few,
anything to show you
how much I love you.


Did you guess my secret,
I am not a poet.
Couldn't write a sonnet,
and I think you know it.

I am not a farmer,
can't give you a bunny.
I don't have a beehive,
sorry bout the honey.

I am not a baker,
Don't know bread from batter.
And I'm not a painter,
and it doesn't matter.

I don't need a present
all I have to do,
is look at you to show you
how much I love you.

Stories for me take time to tell—time and more words than a single paragraph or even a page can contain. I promise, though, I’ll do my best to keep this from getting too long.
If I were a poet, I could rhyme. I would understand rhythm outside of the in and out, in and out of fucking...

if i were a poet i'd kidnap you put you in my phrases and meter ..

If I were a poet, I would slice through the thick air of shame and anger and regret with lyrics to the next great Chris Pureka song, rather than slicing my forearm and legs with the razors hidden next to my vibrator in my bedside table.

if I were a poet

you would be my story if i were a poet

What appeals to me most about Michael's poems is the fury and the imagery of them. I love the vividness of his reactions and the very personal turns and swirls of the lines. The worlds in which I myself live, the private world of personal reactions, the biological world (animals and plants and even bacteria chase each other through the poems), the world of the atom and molecule, the stars and the galaxies, are all there; and in between, above and below, stands man, the howling mammal, contrived out of "meat" by chance and necessity. If I were a poet I would write like Michael McClure - if only I had his talent.

If I were a poet, I wouldn't cry. I would pop pills and shut down, swallowing Jameson and emotions like air and water.

if I were a poet, I would answer in one word, bottling up my emotions of multi-syllabic, complex sentences so I could release them in verse and rhythm and rhyme.
