Poetry can be the language of dissonance, but also the simple and elegant thought which has the possibility of unlocking closed hearts and minds.
Either way, I don’t think we write poetry to get wealthy. We write simply to express our hearts to those interested in such things. And THAT is fun enough.
Poetry has a power, a potential to point out the corrupted code that creeps into our systems and awaken us to return to more aesthetic, loving and truthful simplicities.
Black holes have power. They are invisible to most of us, but they can literally change space and time. That might be just what we need. Self publish, suck more hearts into a different future. That is not revolution, it’s transformation at the highest order.
