Neither Condition nor Profession

"To be a poet
is a condition,
not a profession." -Robert Frost

To be a poet
is neither
condition nor profession.

It is
confession.

  15. To be a poet, to be a welder, to be an author, to be anything,
    depends on the person and the doing -- the name means nothing.
