MY FELLOW AMERICAN

Oscar Wilde, 1882. LEHTIKUVA / EVERETT COLLECTION / Jerry Tavin

i do appreciate you

my friend

and your poems too

 

your directness

is the key

that honesty

 

will get your ass

in trouble

 

dancing in the bullshit

bubble of decorum

 

but you’re a poet

just doing your job

making the world

 

a little more

uncomfortable

with its comfortable

 

judgments

and tidy conformities

 

it’s up to us

to write it down

 

not let it go

it’s up to us

to speak

 

out against or for

it’s about freedom

and love my friend
