If I Didn't Poet

by Erika Burt

    I would be sign words to the deaf

    Be Braille to the blind

    A mime to the crowd or even pantomime

    Give clues with my lashes

    Whistle wonders in disguise

    Sigh serenades or

    Tap it out on stage

    Play the flute or the lyre

    String a violin

    Dance to a song like I'm floating in the wind

    Perhaps I would hum

    A myriad of melodies so sweet

    Draw words to love songs

    From deep within me

    All that so I could show it

    For you my dear

    If I didn't poet
