cummings knew it best
give it up for blessed addiction
put it all in lowercase
get me past this present tense
get me through the not erased.
the great big IS to the great big why
answer comes in strangest of ways
is the only because i could spend my life on
and never quit with the lowercase.
give it up for blessed distraction
for the things for which we do obsess
give it all for all wrongs we rely on
that smack us ending dead in the face
give it up for all of the losing
and all the betrayal bullshit scheming
so we can face what we cannot admit
give it over to truth that’s unredeeming.
give it up and over and in
in the strangest miraculous ways
and to all the walls they build everyday
knock them down with your lowercase.
