Poem Thief

Word by word
Line by line
Help yourself
To what is mine

Every image
Every rhyme
Every rhythm
Every time

Take my muse
And metaphors
I write mine
To make them yours

  2. Thanks, Robyn. You nailed it. Double entendre. Generous AND ironic. ;-)

  3. Nice! I like the slightly creepy guy in the picture, too. I want to say to him, get your own muse!

  4. Thanks, Ruth. That is a portrait of Baudelaire painted by Gustave Courbet in 1848.

  5. Ha! I guess Baudelaire had his own muse. Sorry, Baudelaire.
