SUBPOEMPOEM.jpg

Training prose into lines
of poetry is a practice of
freeing oneself from
the arbitration of the order
imposed by law.

Disarm the threat of the boot,
the book and the rifle and
the bomb and the imprisonment
with praise of peace
in its full blossom of difference,

its palate of color and dance,
its detachment which creates
space for truly touching
the earth.
Your poems may be deemed

sub, but no matter if
you accept their transience
as well as your own.
And your lines are merely
reflections of a long

sketching of lines, be they
by brush, code, pen, or picket
protesting brutal disregard
made guiding star.

 

Inspiration: Jonatan Bäckelie‘s concept of “Subsecular arts”
