This is my peace offering to you. You're a writer and so am I. While you write about Aramaic primacy, I write poetry. Enjoy yourself:


I do not write poetry
Poetry is tantra for the talking dead with leather suitcases
To paint the higher man on papyrus is the seal of my fathers

I do not write poetry
I fashion dark worlds for the unborn in limbo
Lucifer plays Ave Maria with flute in hand at twilight

I do not like poetry
Buddhist monks were known to play chess with Platonic solids during meditation until their hands became eyes
Sagittarius plays cards at gunpoint on a collapsing balcony to ease the stress of living

I do not like poetry
Alien slave girls laugh in Syriac
Purple children in white Sufi dresses circle cornfields slowly to collect earth into their backpacks

I do not compose poetry
I would rather liberate spirit with the incense underneath my sandals to sire a serpentine nimbus
Textbooks are liquid gel tablets for the frozen literary

I do not compose poetry
I would rather throw letters of my past into the ocean
And collect seashells on the outer shores of you
???Do not give up, for that is ignorance and not according to the rules of this art... Like the lover, you cannot hope to achieve success without infinite perseverance.???
