Fighters pack a ton of power into quick jabs.
Like a fighter, poets should have some short poems in their arsenal. Sometimes a concise message has a huge impact. Short poems are also a good way to create elongated metaphors and analogies - so its a forum to play in.
Not every poem I write is painstakingly enduring to read until the end. These are some shorter, more epic poems that use symbolism, metaphor and other poetic tools to convey a message. No long content-ridden intro either, just enjoy :)
Some pretty dang good short poems...
