For Matthew Burgess; a proposal on writing.

Use all you have to tell that
there is no point in trying
if you can't, win over hearts

leave them, there is no truth
in people's words; feelings and
truths are in objects and how

people use them, make the baby
Jesus cry, deliver trainloads
forget Hamlet, life is short

eat dessert first, when you can't
find the words, wave your arms
and bang the pots, grow flowers

kill them and watch them rot, steady
into the still black soil, and don't spill
your tea, it's hot.
