every one wants to know


quiet is the self and far away

ghosts recur in traffic thoughts

blooming are the naughty ways

masking pains in silver coats


loud is the world and so near

deads resurrect in secular songs

whispers are whispers so rare

saying things where one belongs


there is a nearby Christmas

every one wants to know

every one wants to know

    Hey Chester, quick question!

    How do you format your poems such that it maintains its spacing in the reader feed? My last poem was spaced out similarly to yours, but came off as just a long sentence on the reader feed. :/
