A 30 October poem from Klaus Høeck's '1001 poems'

  hints tips and good ad
  vice to a young po
et ‘ ‘it sounds so beautiful’
  i said - ‘does lofty
  poetry but po
etry is only lofty
to the same extent as life
  is denigrated
  and debased’ - i said
‘poetry ought to be more
  like a turnip in
  its fat fertile soil’
