shake it out




because it is this point in the semester
because sitting still is exhausting
because i'd rather be meditating
becuase it is already april
because we're all under the weather
because i have been dancing
because i could listen to pavement for days
because the sequence is also history
because the syllables are too many
because somebody believed the wrong side won
because we're not in new york
because one thinks one means exactly what one says
because form is never more than an extension of content
because possibility is geography
because ezra pound was born in idaho
because that's my whole life spent feeling out of place
because the southwest is waiting
because this blog is mostly no longer relevant to me
because a monster poem is growing
because sometimes rhythm is broken
because words are not enough
because this is a kind of tree
