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

Profession: poet

I am a poet. Where do I work?
In a bank.
In a bakery.
At a gas station.
At a convenient store
Or in a flower shop.

The people just need me around
While they go about their business,
I sit in silence
I don’t say a word

but the people know
they know a poet is observing them
and that is what makes them want
to live their lives.
