    off its axis

    my dear friend
    you abide in this realm
    that you have created for yourself
    and you believe that this is a compliment
    to push away from the only existence there is
    because it seems easier to you
    to swallow down these so-called measured fractions
    of comparison between a "credit and faith" establishment
    why it is the life of inventive elements
    that you have come to grow into
    to replace morality's kitchen
    for fear of a silent fear already implemented
    you could never see the logic outside this
    if it hit you in the forehead
    you live on a foundation of holograms
    convincing yourself first to make a habit of it
    but to build a bright future on this
    one would have to float
    or even grow wings
    they too...would have to make-believe it

    Nice work :)

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
