the essence of writing

thanks to the gf I came here and discovered this:

Po-em, po-em, I'm not going
to say it like that, or flit
about in faux boho clothes.
I'm not going to smoke pot or
pretend some supposedly Buddhist retreat
has enlightened me, arranged my chi,
or whatever.

May I still be a poet?

she said everything I feel about poetry. damned be I for not finding the words myself.
