great places

Whitman said,
“to have great poets
there must be great audiences”

Bukowski said,
“to have great audiences,
we need great poets”

I think they were both
fingering the date
before dinner and drinks

in order to have
great audiences
and great poets
there needs to be great places
for them to meet
to collide
to intersect

without this
what is the point?

I don’t know
if there are any of those.
there are “places”
venues, magazines, social media, etc.

but no place as of yet
that is GREAT

for poets
or anything

make great places
