tried to
get my cat to
post a poem—
he just
opened
a pop-up window

prime example
of something
you want done right
hafta
do it
yourself

The language of the poem is like: observation, question, revelation, affirmation. Poem like a river running through towns and has depth. The language of an essay is precise and the child of said poem. Poem is proud mother of essay, the ninja of it all.

today
I read a whole
book of
poems
and passed
it on
to someone else
and said
read it like me
all at once
and understand
its language
so you
go deeper
transport yourself
into its
world
(I said this
in not so many words,
but close enough)

sometimes think
I really see it
what people
want in life and
along the way
we have to
really confront
the relevant issues
to have the honesty
and bravery
to confront
relevant issues—
drink your milk
stay in school
cruise the dharma
set sail
quit school
go insane
go frantic
go ballistic
go vegan
go home

I wanna ask
Kerouac
why he
cracked

I wanna
risk asking
so there’s
no point
avoiding
dying—
gets
a laugh

confront
PAIN

confront
PAIN
it will only get worse
left
for an orphan
