Behind the wall


Let's not obsess on 


getting featured,

pats on backs

or legacy.


Let's not obsess on the feelings, either.

They're nice, but if we write,

let's write to bring the tortured words 

back home

from institutions that feed the



of themselves

on just these words.


Their gluttony should madden us,

should drive us to


forget ourselves 

and all that other shit.


The words are trapped

behind the wall.

Let this be our starting point.
