This is a poem about the page of poetry
Unto which a newer poem has not yet been writ.
Yet: a blank page, part of that fan-like, quick
Shuffling sound, as you take your thumb and run it through them. But time only leads us to
Next: We can only look back in retrospect. But
This next part has not happened yet.
And, it’s the fact that sometimes, silence feels quite like
Some quiet form of violence. Inaction is… some waste
Of paper, and pen, and potentials, possibility.
So, won’t you speak?
Read, in the Name of your Lord.
And write back to Him: a love letter. And love without words
Is not love at all: it’s ego, it’s a poisoning demonstration of destruction: violence.
But: a poem in progress, is you. So keep going.
A declaration in motion. A series of things, which make up a
Story. Change, and continuity. Ongoing, so personally affect-able.
A breath of fresher air; courage.
And a single yellow
rose whose name, we decide, is Hope.
