#everyonecanpoem

For Natalie

Gather all ye literary citizens!
Take up your pens & slice into
the grace of glorious ambiguity

With a bit of death clinging to
our skins the poem lives
to genuflect before us or toggle
off our backs or lick our lips
or yell vagina from mountains
we write into Being – precious
with our being

All hail the Hope Punks!
Pushing placards plastered
with #everyonecanpoem
Hallelujah to Poem as Verb!

If you know you are not long
for this earth why not
cloak your love in immortality
of words on a page on a stage
on a screen – you are seen

You are seen
You are heard
You are heard
You are Poem

Here are the notes I took during our By the River Reading Series, knowing I would use the words as inspiration for today’s poem! Thank you Natalie, Emily, Daniel and all the amazing people who shared the interwebs with us!
