“File”

by Jade Nicole Beals

A poem is not a statement of facts,
although a handwritten draft 
may be a primary source of history.
One has the right to write a poem
even if disagreeing parties say no
even without the record of it:
As for the poet, I will elude the file folder;
I still cannot find my own alphabetical order.
