Cid Corman, “It isnt for want”
It isnt for want
of something to say--
something to tell you--
something you should know--
but to detain you--
keep you from going--
feeling myself here
as long as you are--
as long as you are.
I often feel this way when I say good bye to my mother at the airport...
That searching for something, a what can I say or do to keep you near me.
As seen here. and learned about here.
As found here and generously presented by Amanda Palmer.
Tell All the Truth But Tell It Slant
Tell all the Truth but tell it slant—
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise
As Lightening to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind—
Yes, the whole darn thing… as discussed in my coursera class.
