Excuse me poets – Tribute to Orlando

Excuse me poets

Tribute to Orlando

 

And so the wise

Write

Bland words

Clever words

But men and women

Have died

So they

These Sunday painters

Argue

About the style

The poetics

The rhyme

Whether children

Could have done better

But men and women

Have died

There is something

Missing

A loose connection

Technique

Fuck technique

Fuck if it’s

a quick response

Men and women

Have died

write something

about

what’s happened

don’t write

about grammatics

write about loss

write about love

write about grieving

that we

have come to this

write about

men and women

Have died
