"The Poet in March" by Imogen Joy | YOUNG VOICES MAGAZINE, 2013


The Poet in March

I'lI often flip through these pages
and realize
How many can take photographs with their words
and poetry with their camera
How many can focus meaning with their prose
and minds with their lens
How many can write
write
write a skeleton of humanity
and frame each bone to look beautiful

They’re all flawless poets.
and here I am,
so perfectly
pretending to be one of them

~Imogen Joy Bobert–Hahn, Age 17
