Loved | Poem



oh no did i say that do that
oh yes
i did/said everything all at once
forgive me or bless me
le's dance

i am german irish gentile jew
native to america too
Mozart drew
music lilting -- lighten up

it was for control they taught
tighten up! suck in gut! stick out chest!
now it is our time
now we loosen up
one anothers screws
how else
to greet the humor lord of flies?

was it really Poe's cat
that knocked the pedestal
from Pallas?
imagine that...
r u Dr. Suess and i ol' hat?
