Two kinds of poet
make a chalk circle

One closes the loop,
one scuffs it open.

One can't abide a rule,
one is eaten up with abiding by them.

One opens the spell circle
to let the demon out,
one makes sure the demon stays put
under a spell.

One makes the poem a starting line,
one says the poem is the finishing line.

One says a poem is an infinite game made for play and play alone,
one says a poem can be explicated and won

I know who I am.
Who might you be?
