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






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
