A Poet's Perspective
—a poem by Marc Carver

A Poet's Perspective 

All these poems,
all these years,
if you stood them on top of each other
word on word,
letter on letter,
they would probable be as high as the tower of babel
as high as Jack's beanstalk.
But how many people read them
or feel them
I have no idea,
so why do I continue to write them
nobody else can.

Marc Carver has published six books of poetry and works as an editor for a site in New York. He has had about three hundred poems published around the world but most of all he hopes people enjoy his work and it inspires them to pick up the pen and turn the tv off.
