Just Do What You Think You Should Do

small-green-valley-anna-teasdale-

Still hard to hold this tongue
To not add a 60th slogan
To the 59 slogans of Lojong
My own jingle
To the jangle cacophony of spurs
Another Muammar Gaddafi to walk like an Egyptian

I need to write pastoral like William Carlos Williams
And stop staring at albums Ron Padgett pushes across the table
And don’t be and should be and any belief at all
Becomes Heather Allen’s grasses
Becomes Dylan’s everything passes
Everything changes
