Day 25: 30 Days of Weezy for National Poetry Month


it was all I could hear any longer
the concept of gesture
the concept of civility
this concept of generalizations: can I 
be a certain kind of celebrated?
came home to a dark but not long 
and never lonely this way of travel
to make an anomaly
you must begin anomalous
can't help wanting to be rescued
I was programmed that way
a distinction in belief if you believe the world
can hold you or it can't
you get all the tries to get it right
until trying is a face of failure
you can't complete
can I be a less than 
culpable story repeated till 
fumbling all day so beauty
shatters the points receding
