Po-Biz by Gary E. Walker
published in Volume 4, Issue 1 on September 4th, 1997

	Poetry is equal parts
			caffine and nicotine.
	It's God.
	It's touching your face
			and feeling your 
			breath on my hand.
	It's what I do because I can't juggle.
	It's how to go to bed
			and what to do when you can't.
	It's everything of cold mornings
			and riverbanks and laughter
	Everything of impotence and years.
	It's a parking lot and a broken heart,
			a mountain and a tombstone:
	Equal parts of hopeless romantics
			and blind men crying.
