Spring??? Well, at least it’s World Poetry Day!

Some music from the wonderful Astrud Gilberto!  It Might as Well be Spring

i am poet

i write hieroglyphics

and Beowulf

Wuthering Heights

and the Gettysburg Address.


i paint on cave walls

on parchment


subways and bridges.


i dance to words

play the lute of metaphor

harpsichord of discord

pipes of social conscience.


i speak to pathfinders

and zealots

peasants and



and i listen to what they say so

i can write it all down


on cave walls



on a little piece of napkin

in a small cafe.
