The Activist

Because poetry begins with the parting of the lips,

and should not end

 

very far

from that –

 

because love is like a grape

vine, the activist knows he can never be

 

free, the body no longer

a

 

blank

slate,

 

it’s the idea that the majority is wrong,

that you can reach for the stars

 

and that that, in fact, makes you normal! 

It’s normal to feel that way about music

 

like the top to the jar of the world blew off

and that’s the way it should be – like this feeling

 

is your human right.  Here we are, delectating in the noise

like I was ever a writer

 

but yes! that’s the way

it should be
