When people ask if my poems are true
This is my reply –
“My poems are like popcorn.”
Now let me tell you why.

There’s a kernel of truth in every one
(The reason why I wrote it)
But by the time I’ve finished
It’s expanded, candy-coated.

So, some of my poems may be fluffy,
And some are salty, or sweet,
But a few hard kernels still remain,
Lurking, underneath.
