Overstaying by JD DeHart

Lightning over St-Laurent River on a stormy night in Quebec by JP Marquis


Poets know not to overstay
their welcome.

They linger on the page for just
a while,

a quick word, a brief description,
rhyme or no rhyme.

They say what they need to say,
sometimes veiled in metaphor,

then go skipping away.
