If it were easy, everyone would do it.
Anyone can. Truly. Craft of patience,
like math. Well, then what are you good for?
Poetry is not about understanding.
Language cannot be understood anymore
than time, or gravity, or your spouse and teenaged kids.
Poetry is the spiritual triad of intention
combining with action resulting in responsibility.
Terrified of being held accountable for this
situation I’ve caused. Still, people drive with
out insurance. They jump out of aeroplanes
They eat at MacDonnel’s thrice a week, and
they vote every couple years.
