I've read it before but like it now even more. Short lines, some not so good to me, but others great. 5 fives because short lines mean the ones that don't stick...don't stick.

"Mistrust metaphysics, trust in the imagination and re-fertilize it.

Instead of trying to escape reality, plunge into the flesh of the world.

If you call yourself a poet, sing it, don't state it."

Just because it's poetry doesn't mean it has to be monotone!

watch out for poets on the loose
