Interview with a Poet

Haworth Hodgkinson

 

What do you write?
the questioner asked.

Much and little,
the poet replied.
Make the most of the least,
the best of the worst;
that is the poet's duty.

Yes, but what exactly
do you write about?

the questioner continued.

The poet replied
with a borrowed smile:
That is a fortified secret.
