Poem as Priest…

Here’s an interesting quote from “Whiskey River”


Poem As Priest


Like the good Catholic boy
who tells his all
to the patient priest,
the poet pours his soul
into the poem,
confesses his passions,
his private fears,
that flow like lamb’s blood
upon the pure white page
that passes sentence
after sentence
upon his sins
and turns his penance
into prayer.
– Charles Ghigna
