A piece on being yourself and also on the ability to do poetry as you are hanging with your friends talking

Poetry spoken with friends

Pz-avatarby Tim Campbell24 Jul 2014

There is this idea in poetry
To write as you would speak to your friends
Say fuck if you say fuck
Say pussy if you say pussy
Say whatever you wish
But do it your way
Do not
Deceive self of courage
When cowards only do so
Do not
Do as my words say
If you yourself would not do them
Much in poetry’s language it your clay as it is for a sculptor
You must contort it to your purpose
Just as you would in conversations with your friends
If you are to be a romantic
As I am
Say what you would do with your lovers and do it with the passion that you make love
Make you words count
Make your poetry count
Make your life count
