Blessing or Curse? Free Verse Poetry

The man in your sight

Writes exclusively at midnight

For an hour he spins verse

Is his life a blessing or a curse?

He lives on the success

He writes on the lows

What you read he brings up from below

The street light flickers as his pen drops to the table

For he hasn’t slept in a week

Working on becoming the next Rosseau

Living like an inmate in his chosen poverty

An artist in society

Is his life a blessing or a curse?

Who can answer that?

A question presented to all

Yet none seem to be able to answer but he

You will find his answer in the price of what his book sells for
