And
Words
Make
Sentences

Sentences make paragraphs.

Paragraphs make passages. That is, they do eventually. It takes some great deal of work to make one paragraph, so it is by extension that it takes some great deal of work to make a passage of them.

People

Write in sentences
Or lines.

We
Call
Them
Poets.

Many people write in paragraphs. They take longer to say what they want to, but no less effectively. We call them authors, I guess. I mean, poets can be authors, too, but they’re never called “author” when “poet” will suffice.

Both of these groups are writers.

But I am curious.

Maybe it’s you?
