Dante's inferno

Posted to Action Poetry

let's find the Dante beat
searching hell
via close reading,
shouting, recital,
those damn fiends
we play don't give in
wrapped up characters
in lyrical sentenses
say hi and flee away.
read at least twice
before you get it,
a twenty times before
you taste it,
by heart before you own it.
