'instead' by Lesley Lebkowicz

Reviewed by
States of Poetry ACT - Series Three

we write small poems
make pots that shatter –
if not in fire then falling
from careless hands –

all this to make sense of
the random moments
parading past our hearts
in chaos. instead

we should write poems
make pots that shatter –
if not in fire then falling
from careless hands –
