Let them take up fools

Fasten that mouth and those arms
in this ten degrees of quiet
to keep it so. What thousand
scholars said nature was truth,
keep that quiet also and demure
to a battling forehead running
deep into a wall into even a voice
that will, if kept quiet, remain so.
Will restrain and vocalise only
its pleasure at the wind,
note only its notes high on it
rather than knock forth such notes
to belittle the wind, dwarf it so.
No, allow that chord a child’s role
beneath its parents milk its colic,
let even your own melt down to the table
where maybe one day it will rise on its own.

  2. It is shit.

    That’s a magic rhyme.
