IN PURSUIT OF  POETRY

       Day after day,
      hour upon hour
      throwing thought 
      after thought 
      upon spiritual fire,
      time distending...
      yet every bloated 
      minute ending with
      unfulfilled desire
      to dress literature
      nobly-- trying to
      make the words
      worthy of the fire.

That won't work. What you have to do is just write, and then throw it out there, fire or not.

your words are worthy and your meaning accepted, thank you.
