Most obscure poet

I google “most obscure poet”
and I find poets whose obscurity
has become a brand

A certain mr. Puce from a town
named Truth and Consequences
was engaged in wordplay

A lady wrote three poems a day
by the time when she was eighty
the boxes had reached the ceiling

Meanwhile, a child knows obscurity
is out of reach. It is not a name
and will never be. Therefore, it is the one

thing that we can become forever;
Obscurity doesn’t inflate like fame
every artist should try for it, better late
than never

Most obscure poet was originally published on Meandering home
