poem as hammer & chisel

the gumptious sage posits –
posits while

the bird is principally

in chirp     she posits the
undoing of

her positing     positioned
as she is

between a chirp and a hard
place –

Use the poem as you would a
hammer, a

chisel     put them on a pedestal
worship the

bam and cut of it and you have
the cult of

hammer&chisel     put the poet/m
up on high

& you have armies led by pen led
by the thrum

of beauty, benevolence, bravado &
truth (off, coarse)
