He Thinks Poetry is Fraud

He is allowed
to sit bundled on the porch
hugging the walker

on the cool June morning
with all the piety of the flowers
swarmed around him.

He feels that
poetry is fraud.
But the pretty poets
long fingered, pavane

among the peonies,
gesturing toward
but not quite touching.
