Ignored on poetry highway


Beware of the emptiness
of poetry highway

Millions of poets
are on the road unnoticed

Waiting for the occasional
reader trap

– Iself

Occasionally given to the feeling of being ignored on the highway. Written using the three words empty, ignored and highway, today's gift from 3WW.

So often poetry is a lonely highway. The internet helps us connect, at least!

I love the spareness of your words!
