Set 1: Breathe out

1.
poetry’s a sexual mouth,
prose knows where to begin and end;
theatre measures a cup of life—
and music always portends

2.
experience the gist—
with your doubt—exist.

3.
death proves there’s no rejection
the only door we all walk through: is open

4.
no discriminations!
lest yourself be pitted—

5.
musical ear miss explanations

6.
freely a song floats through the air
by man’s greed is it snared

7.
before I knew anything
I was busy being new—

8.
don’t map the process to there—get there!
no one can follow the route anyway

9.
I think butterflies, after the small
what girth-mother nets them all?

10.
he who cannot aspire acquires

11.
be not a slave to beauty
but the thing itself

12.
all learning from this comes—
that of now from later on

13.
so long as man occupies the earth
always war and cries unheard
never the reverse

14.
I read to honor antiquity
and realize myself an old shoe

15.
genius is labor:
talent the child

16.
your mirth is your worth

17.
materiality kills off personality
in its stead can only speed breed

18.
the poet’s gateway is the soul
for that is where he perceives the whole

19.
moving from mouth to source—
the way of the intellect is reverse

20.
America can bring out your best, but
it’s no collaboration—it’s war

21.
what seems momentous is only a minute

22.
all’s a dream beyond encounter

23.
writing maintains a traveler’s perspective

24.
confidence is heat
and heat must always be generated

25.
America was formed to kill tradition
and preserve in its wake something efficient—

26.
we do outside what we should do in
and inside what we should do out—
you figure it out

27.
a fool hasn’t learned with age
