Some Things More Important Than Poetry
Life,and people-work and family
Commitments made to be honored-
Witnessing at the passing of others
Periods of necessary silences
Times when all poems blow away
Times when one must be lost -
in a crowd or alone/on Internet or phone
Times when to shop is of utmost importance!
Whole lives when nothing particularly happens!
Gaps between-travelling.Growing into rituals-Reading,listening,absorbing
Every participle participant particle
Every authenticated distancing mechanism
Poetry must wait
at the intersection of thoughts and feelings
and feed upon the scraps again.
