Shove the Poem

Let me make this perfectly clear:

All I have ever cared about
And all you should ever care about
Is what happens when
you lift your eyes from this page.

Do not think for one minute
it is the Poem that matters.
Is not the Poem that matters.
You can shove the Poem.
What matters is what is out there
in the large dark
and in the long light,
Breathing.
