Poetry. "It's OK that poetry won't save us from circumstance, or pave our road to what we're tempted to call Heaven, but it doesn't matter because reading Bernadette Mayer's poetry is where I always want to be.

Shelves: poetry
if an aster falls over my page
it's only because I'm privileged
to have a bouquet
& when I walk in beauty

worse than any empire
all greed
machines & bombs for everyone
destruction for all
