••can ye pass the acid test?••

ye who enter here be afraid, but do what ye must -- to defeat your fear ye must defy it.

& defeat it ye must, for only then can we begin to realize liberty & justice for all.

time bomb tick tock? nervous tic talk? war on war?

or just a blog crying in the wilderness, trying to make sense of it all, terror-fried by hate radio and FOX, the number of whose name is 666??? (coincidence?)

how poets bug me 
not all poets
but a lot
don't write
the way they want
their work read 
take the new
poet laureate
philip levine 
one of his
best-known pieces
what work is 
listen to him read it 
it's not
the same 
you can't read it
the way he reads it 
because he's a great poet?
because he's a great reader? 
not because of
how good he is
because of
line breaks 
he doesn't always
break lines
the way he reads them
so when you read
what you see
you get it
too many poets
do that 
as that
