for Lawrence Ferlinghetti, author of "Poetry as Insurgent Art."
Strive to change the world in such a way that there’s no further need to be a dissident. Read between the lives, and write between the lines. Be committed to something outside yourself.
after the Free Expression March
if I carry a weapon ...
I hand over my pen
crusting to claret
on the paper ...
in the jail cell my words
stronger than steel bars
