The Beat (Ars Poetica)

Nouns, pronouns, adjectives, conjunctions,
Verbs, prepositions, adverbs, interjections,
Locked together by a Beat.

Each Beat has its own stamp.
Each stamp its own stamper.
Each stamper its own heart.

The hearts of poems are unique
Like snowflakes or fingerprints.
Each individual.

Hearts can vary the speed and length to control the tempo and change the message.
Size can be deceiving and

Beats can be ocean waves,
Ripples in a pond,
Or a cannonball in the pool.

Poetry is the speaker for the Beat,
Enhanced by the words,

Controlled from within.
