Exciting news!

FITNESS FOR POETS weekly verse is now a MONTHLY letter as I shift focus to publishing my first book– an illustrated memoir about dancing away those early Art school days.

Baseline Drum

Baseline Drum

  1. Survive
  2. Create

the Answer so quickly?
(here, take your drum)

Knowing it
simply feels much better

than the comfort of
a logical progression?

Hmm. Say we,

  1. Survive, then! (You safe?)
  2. Create

there’s no return.
(We can give back instead!) 
options abound, 
such choices!

Too many?

Subtract an O
but ooh!


Survive TO Create TO Give Back

  1. serve,
  2. maybe teach?

You decide from up there on high, 
at the pinnacle, you balance, 
Space and Time,

all the while! 
you survive you
create you give back,
you serve, maybe teach;
you collapse,

the Answer, 
my love
(here, take your drum)

we’ll set it to a walk… 
ad infinitum.

  1. Survive
  2. Create
  3. Give back
  4. Repeat
