On Writing · Poetry · R.M. Engelhardt · The New Verse Movement















These days


Calls themselves

A writer


But unless

You have spent

Most of your life

Searching for

The perfect words

Unless you have lost

Hours, years & moments

Of sleep, unless you have

Stalked, loved every image

In your mind and have

Chased it down like

A mistress, or a woman just

Out of reach



You are not

A writer


Unless you

Have truly

Bled the ink


And if you

Are serious about it

And it is your only ambition?


You will.



R.M. Engelhardt
