Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. The poet, the unknown being...a loony, a dreamer, a hermit. The poet writes poetry...but really, what is poetry? Arts, politics, mere amusement? This little book is an insight into the mindset of someone who just can't help but to be a poet. It is a manifesto for the freedom of thought and expression, an essential source of motivation and inspiration for readers and writers alike.
