34. Why I Read Poetry

The view of a stranger defining me
at left angles to my right,
causing me to avoid movements
that shrink into rinky-dink abstractions.

Pushing me to hunker down
and keep on growing. To mash the button.

Create your "list of executive deeds just and unjust".
Wrap them around and around, tighter and tighter,
avoiding endless conclusions.
Learning of "the power of personality".

That's all I wanted to say.
