Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."
— A.A. Milne


I can't
can't write
poems
shut up like this

with no air
but the wind dulled
and squished
and hummed
and processed
through air conditioner

don't they understand
I can't write about it
not experiencing it

nature caged
dies like a tiger in the zoo
or wind swept into a box
and wilts as a flower in a room
