Show Poem…Stop suckling the anger/ Sept. 4 / Josey Records KC, MO #Poetry¬†

Wake up!
Stop fucking it up.

Fight the addictions
I dentify the cure.

Stop suckling the anger.
Addictions to anger.

Stop suckling fear.
Addictions to fear.

Addictions to hate
It’s not cool
Addictions to pain
Stop sucking the pain
The pain does not make it real
The pain does not make it yours
The pain does not make you you.

The opening bell has rung
The computers are booted

Black box algarithoms of love
Are in the menu
Let the trading begin

Cast out the computations

As sure as your heart pumps blood
There are worlds
For you to live through
Start living
Stop hating

What is it like to see
Through another person’s eyes
To taste the sweetness
Of another’s tears

To stand up
To stand alone

Discover the music
in another voice
With no dirt from
Your own path

Listen for the signs
Look for the messages
The world is rooting you on
It is there for you

Give yourself the patience
That you give your children
Give it to everyone you meet
With everything you do

It’s the lesson on the black board

It’s the Sermon on the mound
Not hidden in the past
Like dusty book

Like the dust
It is everywhere

It’s in the air
It’s right there
In front of you

Feel it
