le beat des dispersions du coeur / les os qui brûlent la bouche / les impuretés de l’émotion Robert Fortin les nouveaux poètes d’Amérique
lovely bit of post…i want to put few good words
i find it hard to start
when upsetting the status quo
when the world is upside down
the crowds, the drama, the cycles
rage, rage against the dying of the light, Dylan Thomas
Poetry in a time of protest, come to me
Say to them,
say to the down-keepers,
« Even if you are not ready for day
it cannot always be night. »
You will be right.
For that is the hard home-run.
Live not for battles won.
Live not for the-end-of-the-song.
Live in the along.
