"Before The Art Cannot Be Defined" by Joe DiMino

What is poetry?
One of us
Has failed:
Either I
In the telling
Or you
In the knowing;

It is saying,
What is beauty?
Independent of the beholder!?
Or not subject to God!?

And if no God
Surely Word only
As name would be just
As breath-of-life
Little more than a minor wind
If not send with soul
For direction
Transcending reason
The greater spirit
Of all motion
Before the art
Cannot be defined….
