Serious Criticism

There’s been
serious criticism
of the
way I
comport myself
transport myself
spin around
the black
hole of
creation like
a smear
of bluebirds
still linked
to a
compass world
when time’s
come to
a standstill.

 

It’s a
frail pink
criticism,
I think
they’re
outraged
that I
don’t have
Scout badges
& diplomas
accolades &
grants under
my belt
that I
don’t show
up at
conferences
waving a
large poster
of myself
that
I’ve been
stripped down
to a
yellow pad
& a
ballpoint,
reveal secrets
& spew
blessings on
everyone.
