the courage is the next step

Posted to Action Poetry

an attempt to convey
the guarded bricks of my life
without ever really saying anything
never works
nothing is conveyed
but nonsense and no feeling
beating around reality never works
but the truth really does hurt
and here's where poetry requires
the great valuable leap of life
I've been standing on the edge
forever or at least a couple years
testing the wind to see when
hearing the catcalls
jesus fucking christ just JUMP
