Be nobody's darling;/Be an outcast./
Take the contradictions/Of your life/
And wrap around/You like a shawl,

To parry stones/
To keep you warm.

 

Take a shower,
Wash away the bad thoughts,
Cleanse your body,
Put on some relaxing music,
Get in to bed,
Breathe.

A poet’s work … to name the unnamable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world and stop it from going to sleep.
