Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

Between 0 and 1

Between 0 and 1


I ignore the dangers,

perhaps naively.

Maybe I just like flirting with

the edge,

perfecting my balance

without losing it?


Every fool must learn,

become grounded

in his own abilities,

transform the uncontrollable

into something less mysterious,

at least to himself.

It’s not so much ‘write what you know’,

as it’s ‘write what they want to hear’,

a “popular” poet once said,

but if it’s really just for show,

(kind of like a fancy brassiere)

then isn’t poetry just dead?
