A Poem a Day to Millennium 16 September 1999


That again I see such
          reactive miscomprehension
                    on the part of my fellows
I am drawn to boldly reveal
          none but the truth
                    however real --
One can say anything!
          (if it is appropriately:
                              quoted     or
One can talk directly
          by seeming to be oblique
                    sing a wider voice
          by waxing specific
                    as "I" means "You"
Speak from empowerment
          rather than contrivance
Know when not to write
          to leave fully ferment
                    that which will finally
                              bite the very edge
And above
          all          reciprocate!
- Paul Malécot
