A Poet's Dilemma

Drunken metaphors
Cavorting to strange rhythms,
Hauling sackfuls
Of allegory, even cliché
Pilfered from a Bedouin’s caravan,
Spice-laden, my words,
But their aroma
is lost to a critic's blocked nose.

Nicely said... but doesnt joy multiply if the critic smells it as well....

First time here.. hope to drop in more often... do drop in at my place sometime when time n inclination permit...
