Don’t be afraid to plead–
Be proud to be outrageous so long as
you have regard for “un-with-it” truth.
Say things that are, and are not the same.
Accidental or intentional, internal or external,
or both, it does not in the least represent sloth.
All of us feel losses. And we–we were not robbed
of the pastoral dream of youth–
just the pastoral dream of maturity.
To write in mockery of the system is the ultimate
Slavery to the system, of all things.
To say “I Love You” to language, especially now,
in its decayed condition–
to tickle the ear with musical savvy–
to say that human integrity can walk
hand in hand with responsibility…
It’s a challenge to chaos
Why use language?
Why simply to save the Word.
I’ll say it forever, damn it!
Life in a harsh world IS worthwhile!
